South region - Volunteer & Secondments news
We launched our overall strategic 17/18 South Plan, which aims to support over 10,000 new young people through our programmes and Prince’s Trust Online. At least 60% of those young people will come from our priority areas, including London, Solent, Medway and North Kent, Bristol and the West of England, Thames Valley and Plymouth / Torbay.
Our South Volunteering and Secondments 17/18 Plan also launched in April. It engages our mentors, corporate volunteers, specialists and Team for Employees to support young people across programmes. This year we will continue mentor training in Mental Health and work with young people requiring Language, Literacy and Numeracy support on Enterprise.
We will soon be welcoming Mosaic volunteers into our volunteering team, who are key to our education delivery. Our Talent Match programme in Kent and Sussex has become an example of how excellent ‘standalone’ mentoring can help some of the most excluded young people.
