Mentoring for young people in Harrogate

At The Harrogate International Academy, we are proud to offer mentoring to young people. Mentoring is fast becoming recognised as an indispensable tool for personal, academic and professional development in today’s rapidly evolving world.

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a supportive and guiding relationship between a more experienced individual (the mentor) and a less experienced person (the mentee). Mentoring involves the mentor sharing their knowledge, skills, and expertise to help the mentee develop personally, academically, or professionally.

The goal of mentoring is to empower the mentee to reach their full potential, set and achieve goals, navigate challenges, and grow both personally and professionally.

The mentoring sessions provide a safe and impartial space for your child to express themselves openly with a trusted adult who is not a family member or friend.

How does it Work?

We will agree on a schedule of time and dates to suit your child and meetings will take place online only. The mentor will initially get to know your child and together they will set goals. Progress is closely monitored
