We’re working with schools and partners across Leeds and Bradford to help children unlock their potential by placing sports coaches as mentors to engage, motivate and support.
Sport is an incredible tool. It can raise self esteem, improve physical and mental health and build resilience. It can develop communication and social skills and helps children form better, stronger relationships with their peers. It can give children an outlet for their energies, release the pressure they are under and even change how they feel about themselves and their schools.
Project:Mentor isn’t a catch all approach. Every child is different and has their own unique challenges, so we talk to schools and education professionals to learn more about each child and then match them to the right coach mentor. We develop a planned intervention and agree measurable outcomes, so that we can see positive, real life and important changes.
If you know a child that you think would benefit from Project:Mentor support please get in touch. A conversation cost nothing and it could change a young life.
We’d love to help.
