Catalyse Change CIC are running a new mentoring programme, providing six months of support, guidance and mentoring for young women aged 14–19 years, from disadvantaged backgrounds in south Bristol. This is part of Bristol City Council’s Youth Sector Support Fund, run by Quartet Foundation.
A woman working in the sustainability sector will provide the mentoring over a six-month period to support a young woman to identify and address a current goal, whether it is educational, career focused, or around personal development and wellbeing. They will also have access to a quarterly workshop to improve understanding of sustainability, how to access the educational & career opportunities available, and how to build a toolkit for wellbeing. The mentoring will take place from September 2019 to March 2020.
