We pair women in the first 10 years of their careers with women from refugee or asylum seeking backgrounds in London, for a 10-week training and mentoring programme. As a mentor, you will help your mentee define a set of personal and/or professional goals, which you will support them to meet by the end of your 10 weeks together.

Our mentees

Every mentor is paired with a woman from a refugee or asylum-seeking background. During the programme, mentees attend two hours a week of confidence-building English classes on top of their mentoring sessions.

Their mentor will help them to identify and work towards a set of personal and/or professional goals, broadening their networks and improving their wellbeing by opening up new opportunities and providing an opportunity for them to practise English.
