With the support from trained volunteer mentors acting as role models, Mosaic programmes aim to bridge the aspirations-attainment gap by linking young people with inspirational role models and helping boost their confidence, self-efficacy and long-term employability.

Secondary school mentoring programme

This year-long programme, for 11 to 18-year-olds, offers a package of opportunities that includes inspirational speaker presentations and Mosaic’s World of Work (WoW) visits, alongside connecting students to positive role models who combine life experience with a structured programme to help raise their confidence, self-efficacy and future employability.

Mosaic's enterprise challenge 

This is an annual inter-school competition that encourages a spirit of entrepreneurship among young people. Students aged 11 to 16-years-old with mentor support learn about establishing and running a business through a business simulation game, with successful teams pursuing their own sustainable businesses through regional and national Dragons’ Den style finals. 

Ex-offender programme

This national programme links volunteer mentors with 18 to 30-year-old prisoners as they prepare for release. Working on a one-to-one basis, the mentoring relationships lasts for a period of at least 12 months, ideally six months during custody and a further six months in the community. Mentoring relationships are intended to establish areas of support designed to prevent re-offending and enable the mentees to make a positive contribution to society.
