Today (31 July 2018), MacRoberts is delighted to host Mosaic Scotland Connect’s event, organised by Mosaic and The Prince’s Trust.

This event will promote ‘Relatable Role Models’ and will feature a special Q&A from Mosaic Mentor Rupa Mooker, MacRoberts’ HR Director.

The event will bring together the wider Mosaic network to promote the value and impact of mentoring and celebrate and connect the different components that make the Mosaic initiative and mentoring programmes at The Prince’s Trust such a success in Scotland.

The ‘Relatable Role Models’ initiative seeks to demonstrate the power relatable role models can have as significant contributors to the success of young people from all backgrounds. What constitutes ‘relatable’ differs from person to person, so Mosaic’s aim is to promote a multidimensional definition of ‘relatability’ in order to reach and impact as many young people as possible.

Mosaic Connect invites existing supporters, mentors and beneficiaries, corporate and education partners to come together for free and connect to learn about the Mosaic initiative and mentoring opportunities in the region.

About Mosaic

Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007, Mosaic’s mentoring programmes create opportunities for young people growing up in our most deprived communities. Mosaic’s vision is for all young people to be supported to realise their potential. With the help of volunteer mentors acting as role models through our structured programmes, we aim to bridge the aspirations-attainment gap. By linking young people with inspirational role models in this way, we boost their confidence, self-efficacy and long-term employability.

About The Prince’s Trust

Youth charity The Prince’s Trust helps young people to develop the confidence and skills they need to realise their ambitions, so that they can live, learn and earn. Founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, the charity supports 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed, struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.

Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. The programmes offered by the charity give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training.

The Trust has helped over 900,000 young people to date and supports over 100 more each day.
