Be a Role Model
Urban Synergy believes that Positive Role Models and Mentors can make a big impact on a young person’s life.
Since 2008 we’ve undertaken a programme of inspirational seminars across South London schools, taking professionals from all walks of life to provide inspiration and raise aspirations.
Our seminars follow a simple formula, a panel of professionals talk about their journey to success and any obstacles they have overcome. Following this, young people are given a chance to meet a larger number of our Role Models and Mentors in small groups in speed mentoring sessions. Here students are able to ask questions to the one or more role models available and get more tips and ideas on how to progress into that career path.
Why not come along and share your path to success and inspire young people?

Crucially, it can help ensure that young people’s decisions about future education and training options are informed by real and early exposure to the business world.Lord Heseltine, 'No stone unturned: in pursuit of growth'
