Opportunity: Educational Mentoring

Young refugees can face many barriers in achieving their full academic potential, including lack of English, moving from school to school, different teaching styles to those they have experienced before, and the asylum process itself. The educational mentoring project provides a young refugee or migrant with a structured supportive relationship; they have one to one time with an adult each week to work on academic development. The project aims to improve educational attainment, improve fluency in oral, spoken and written English and to increase the young person*s confidence and self-esteem.
