Contribution is a key part of my purpose in life, so I am really looking forward to the Mosaic Female Entrepreneurs gathering this evening – my way of giving something back for the benefits I have been blessed with in life.
I highly recommend this group to anyone who wants to support less privileged children in experiencing new opportunities.
Below is some information from their website:
“Mosaic inspires young people from deprived communities to realise their talents and potential.
Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007, Mosaic’s mentoring programmes create opportunities for young people growing up in our most deprived communities. Our programmes are delivered by volunteers, and lift the aspirations of young people and close the gap between those aspirations and their attainment. By linking young people with inspirational role models in this way, we boost their confidence, self-efficacy and long-term employability.
Positive aspirations are crucial for young people’s future success; what people aspire to do as a child is linked to what they do later in life, and low aspirations lead to poor academic attainment and professional achievement. For many young people an ‘aspirations-attainment gap’ is caused by a lack of information about how they can realise their ambitions, by too few role models and a lack of contact with adults in professional roles.” – Mosaic Website.
“It is vital for business leaders to help young people to see what options they have after education, so that they can leave feeling confident in their abilities and with a sense of purpose and ambition for the future”
