HRH The Prince of Wales’s mentoring initiative, Mosaic, will move home to sister charity The Prince’s Trust from Business in the Community on 1 July 2016.
Having been 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, with a particular focus on those from Muslim communities. Mosaic’s vision is for all young people to be supported to realise their potential, with assistance from volunteer mentors.
With both Mosaic and The Trust sharing a very similar purpose – to help disadvantaged young people to overcome their barriers and move towards education, employment and training – it was agreed earlier this year that Mosaic and The Prince’s Trust would move towards integration.
Mosaic will continue to deliver its high-quality programmes, supporting more than 7,500 young people this year. The infrastructure within The Trust is well-suited to Mosaic's operations and will enable Mosaic to grow in scale and impact with improved efficiency and effectiveness.
Mosaic’s Managing Director Jonathan Freeman said:
“Mosaic is forever grateful for the warmth and generosity of colleagues and friends at Business in the Community, who have made the last seven years such a memorable experience, and helped facilitate the wonderful growth Mosaic has experienced.
