A2b (aim to be), our peer mentoring scheme supported by The Barnet Group, is running in 3 secondary schools within the London Borough of Barnet - London Academy, Hendon and Whitefield.
181 young people were involved in the scheme between September 2014 – 31 March 2015, consisting of 94 mentors and 87 mentees. Both mentors and mentees have responded positively to their experience and schools highlight a number of beneficial outcomes.
“Before I was seeing my mentor I had 9 internal exclusions but when I started seeing mentor the amount of internals stopped”, Yr 7 mentee at Hendon School
“Working with young children helped me realise my career path” Sharmarke, Peer Mentor at Hendon School
