Mosaic inspires young people from deprived communities to realise their talents and potential.
Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007, Mosaic’s mission is to create opportunities for young people of all backgrounds growing up in our most deprived communities, championed by Muslims and harnessing the power of positive thinking. In doing so, we also aim to increase opportunities for understanding between people of different backgrounds.
We link young people with inspirational role models to boost their confidence, self-efficacy and long-term employability. We provide mentoring programmes tailored to the needs of particular groups:
· Primary School students –our mentors inspire young girls and their mothers to pursue their education and consider the careers available to them.
· Secondary School students – group mentoring is supplemented with World of Work visits and exciting presentations. Students also have access to our Enterprise Challenge competition, and an intensive programme for mentees demonstrating leadership potential.
· Young ex-offenders – one-to-one mentoring support is provided for those making the difficult transition from prison back to their communities, coupled with access to employability programmes.
Young people will succeed if they are supported by those who are already successful.
Mosaic's work is focussed on the most deprived communities in the UK and where there is a significant Muslim community. Over 80% of the beneficiaries Mosaic supports live in the 20% most deprived communities across the country.
Our operations in each region are overseen by a Regional Leadership Group, comprising senior figures from that region who support Mosaic's work and volunteer their time in support of our programmes. A dedicated Mosaic Regional Manager is responsible for all delivery in the region.
