Community Mentoring Programme

Could you help a young person to realise their full potential?

Raising Aspirations matches volunteer mentors with students from Taunton Academy and Court Fields school in Wellington. It encourages students to develop their self-belief and aspirations. Commitment is approximately one hour a month during term-time.

Proven Impact

Independent evaluation has shown that students taking part in raising aspirations have experienced better outcomes including improved GCSE results.

Benefits to mentors

Mentors receive training before the start of the programme and ongoing support during the mentoring period. The 'GROW' coaching model used within the programme can also benefit businesses and community groups.
