We met with the Soho House team to build a plan to develop links with the communities local to the houses. The team were keen to build a programme that was an opportunity for members to develop and network too.
Over a 16 week programme, mentors developed coaching specific skills. We host regular networking events at the Houses to make sure young people feel confident using their membership and building their networks outside of sessions with their mentors.
The programme closes with a showcasing event, where we invite young people to tell us what’s happened so far.
Soho Impact: Open House Mentoring is a 16 week programme of mentoring and mentor training, delivered in partnership with Creative Mentor Network.
