We are delighted to announce that The Way Youth Zone’s Mentoring Programme has won the prestigious EMCC (European, Mentoring & Coaching Council) International, Coaching, Mentoring and Supervision Awards in Mentoring!
This is an incredible achievement and is a huge recognition for the outstanding contribution The Ways Mentoring Programme has made on the lives of many young people, which for some is a lifeline when they need it the most.
A huge congratulations to all of The Way’s Mentoring team – mentees, mentors and volunteers and a special thank you to the Steve Morgan Foundation, who continue to support and fund The Ways Mentoring Project.
Billie Jamie, Mentoring Lead said: “We were absolutely delighted to win this prestigious award, which so many outstanding individuals and organisations have won previously.
It is beyond amazing for The Way Youth Zone’s Mentoring Programme to receive this award. When starting my role as Mentoring Lead I envisioned a programme that wholeheartedly met the individual needs of every young person participating, alongside creating opportunities for the dedicated mentors who volunteer their personal time and encouraging engagement between all in our community.
It is humbling for all of the mentoring team, our amazing volunteer mentors and our funders The Steve Morgan Foundation who make the programme possible, to be recognised for the life-changing impact the support we provide has.”
The official awards night ceremony hosted by the European, Mentoring & Coaching Council will take place later this year at a prestigious event in Dublin.
