Social Enterprise Mentoring

Thank you for volunteering your time, skills and expertise to mentor budding social entrepreneurs in Great Yarmouth. Your support, knowledge and own experiences will help your mentees to achieve their strategic business goals. Here you will find tools and resources to help you to build a successful mentoring relationship.

A mentor at this stage of my life would be really useful to help me focus my vision so they can help me with their experience. I love working with people, I love learning from people and having that mentor would be really useful at this point in my journey.

Founder, Compass Drama Skills
