Campaign: To show young people that peer mentors are here to help

My team and I are peer mentors. We work with young people who have behavioural issues, to help them reach their full potential.

We all have experience of overcoming similar difficulties and know what it’s like to feel alone and misunderstood.

With Fixers, we want to show others that peer mentors are here to help.

They can support students with their studies, while encouraging them to express themselves, so they don’t feel so isolated.

We’re hoping more young people will come forward – to reach out to peer mentors and to talk.

Here is a list of people helping me with this Fix:

 

Mia Brooks

Rebecca Cooke

Toni Knorz-Williams

 

Thank you also to Thomas, Brandon, Katie and Carwyn, who are outside the 16-25 Fixers age range, but have worked with us on this project.

We launched our Fixers film at Headlands School as part of an anti-bullying day and received encouraging praise from the students and staff who viewed it. You can read some of these positive comments below!

 

'I didn't know that peer mentors did all of that!'

 

'This is a brilliant video showing the excellent and effective work that peer mentors carry out and the positive effect they can have.'

 

'Really good film! Very well made for children to understand.'

 

'An amazing project where what the pupils wanted to say was authentically represented by the end product. A fab film with a serious message. Bravo Fixers!'
