In 2021, Bridging the Future started its Online Mentorship scheme, to keep providing support to young forced migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, while face-to-face programmes have been discontinued due to COVID-19.
What We Do
The Online Mentorship scheme is delivered by STEM, IT and English mentors in weekly 1-2-1 sessions or small group sessions. The volunteer mentors do not only help students with their homework, they also help them advancing their STEM and English knowledge, tailoring each session to the student’s needs.
Our volunteer mentors go the extra mile to help mentees pursue their goals, by helping them with CV, cover letters and university application.
The scheme runs from October until March.
