Become an Education Mentor with the Prince's Trust Mosaic Programme

1st November to 31st December
By volunteering to be an Education Mentor in schools, you will be helping to shape the next generation by connecting with young people as a positive, relatable role model mentor.

What the role involves

By volunteering to be an Education Mentor in schools, you will be helping to shape the next generation. You will be working with groups of young people who are taking part in The Prince’s Trust Mosaic programme. The Mosaic programme was developed with a particular focus on raising the aspirations, self-belief and employability of the young people who take part. One of the keyways this is achieved is through connecting more young people to positive, diverse, relatable role model mentors. 

You will be supported throughout the whole programme by a Prince’s Trust Youth Development Lead. 

You and your fellow Education Mentors will deliver sessions with a consistent group of young people in one school. The frequency and time of these sessions are led by the school. Your Prince’s Trust contact will do everything possible to match you up with a school that suits your availability as it is important that you are able to attend all sessions.

Target Demographic

Those coined as the ‘the forgotten cohort’ achieving 4/5s. Those individuals that are not getting any additional support within their school as they do not have challenging behaviour in the classroom but are also not accessing any support as they don’t achieve the highest grades.

Responsibilities include: 

  • Providing guidance in the form of mentoring, once a week in schools, to support young people into a positive outcome over an eight-week period.
  • Planning, creating, and leading a workshop as well as co-ordinating fellow volunteers.
  • Supporting the delivery of workshops on programme by effectively communicating within your team of mentors. 
  • Lending professional knowledge/skills/experience to provide young people with support with their confidence and aspirations.


  • Support young people to reach their potential.
  • Grow your communication and presentation skills
  • Building Community links and contacts
  • Build your leadership and facilitation skills
  • Strengthen relationships within your local community
  • Resources and training are provided free of charge
  • Travel expenses are reimbursed
  • Access to other Prince’s Trust Networking and Volunteering Events
