New mentoring project aims to reach vulnerable young people

NEW SCHEME: New mentoring project aims to reach vulnerable young people

URBAN CHRISTIAN youth charity XLP is launching a national mentoring project called XLM National.

This unique initiative will equip churches across the UK with the information needed to train a team of volunteer mentors, who can provide the necessary support to young people and families who would benefit from mentoring.

Patrick Regan OBE, CEO and founder of XLP, said: “Across the UK, in villages, towns and cities, vulnerable young people and their families are struggling with difficult circumstances including family breakdown, poverty, drugs and crime without any consistent support in their lives, often leading them to drop out of school.  In fact, 31 per cent of NEETs [not in education, employment, or training] did not have someone to talk to about their problems while they were growing up [Princes Trust Youth Index 2013].  

Leading black church leader Rev. Les Isaac OBE, CEO and founder of the Ascension Trust, has given his support to this initiative, stating: “Their work with young people is having a significant impact. When churches get involved with XLP mentoring they are able to extend their contribution to the life of a young person.”
