It's time to meet some of our wonderful mentees!
Park Community School is a co-educational comprehensive school in Leigh Park, Hampshire. The mentees from Park Community are from some of the most deprived homes in the UK the girls are really excited to meet and start their mentoring journey. One of the mentees wrote on her application form " I can't wait to have someone just for me, I would like to work on my confidence- I really find it hard to put my hand up in class and talk to new people. I would love to know what I want to do when I leave school- at the moment I am just so confused!"
The mentoring programme will be for group mentoring sessions, which will run on Wednesday evenings at Park Community School on the following dates:
9th November Mentor Meeting 5.30-6.30pm
7th December Mentor Meeting 5.30-6.30pm
11th January Mentor meeting 5.30 to 6.30pm
1st February Mentor meeting 5.30 to 6.30pm

All the girls have completed an application form, have been selected to be part of the programme and will be trained/briefed in September.
There is a chance that you will attend the event on 12th October and not be able to be matched. This is due to the fact that we match mentees and mentors based on shared interests and careers goals. If you are unmatched at the event, you will be prioritised at our next matching event in Portsmouth.
The Matching event will be held at Park Community School (See address above). At the matching event, you will have the opportunity to speak with a selection of girls before being matched to your mentee.
Please ensure you arrive promptly on the evening.
The matching events are always really exciting occasions. We very much look forward to having you there with us!
