Be The Change Award Ceremony – SHW sponsored mentoring scheme

SHW News


The achievements of 100 students from Crawley and Gatwick schools were recently celebrated at an awards ceremony at The Charis Centre, Crawley. The event was the finale to the Be the Change programme, an initiative co-founded by Graham Moore of Metamoorephosis and Gary Peters of LoveLocalJobs.com, which aims to boost the aspirations and job prospects of young people aged between 13 and 14. SHW’s Laura Miles is pictured above with one of her mentees.



Over the last six months the students have been taking part in a series of activities designed to improve hope, happiness, confidence, relationships, to change negative behaviour and to introduce them to career opportunities. SHW were one of the sponsors alongside First Central, B&CE, Crawley Borough Council, L3 Commercial Aviation, NatWest, Search Consultancy and Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust, each providing mentors for the programme.

 

SHW Senior Partner Adam Godfrey said: “Giving a young person an insight and some guidance at a crucial time in their lives could play a part in changing the course of their entire lives in a positive way. We wish the candidates all the best in future professional endeavours, and I’d like to thank Laura Miles, Carlie Cheall and Emma Hards for being mentors on behalf of the firm.”

 

Co-founder, Graham Moore of Metamoorephosis said: “It has been an incredible journey not just for these amazing young people, but for everyone who has been involved – the teachers, the business volunteers and ourselves. Over the last few months we have been inspired by the way in which the students have engaged with us and their peers and as a result have become happier, more confident in their abilities and more excited about their futures.”
