We believe that every young person should have the chance to succeed. So, we help 11 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed or struggling at school to transform their lives. Many of the young people we help are in, or leaving, care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law.
The Trust has returned £1.4 billion in value to society through our help for disadvantaged young people over the last ten years alone.
Our free programmes give young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilise their lives. We help them develop key skills while boosting their confidence and motivation.
Mosaic is an initiative of The Prince's Trust which inspires young people from deprived communities to realise their talents and potential.
Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007, Mosaic’s mentoring programmes create opportunities for young people growing up in our most deprived communities. Mosaic’s vision is for all young people to be supported to realise their potential. In July 2016, Mosaic moved home to The Prince’s Trust. This integration enables Mosaic to increase the delivery and impact of our mentoring programmes, reaching more young people across the UK.
With the help of volunteer mentors acting as role models, we aim to bridge the aspirations-attainment gap. By linking young people with inspirational role models in this way, we boost their confidence, self-efficacy and long-term employability.
