Have you got what it takes to help a young entrepreneur?
Businesses in Hull are being urged to support young entrepreneurs by becoming business mentors.
Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership and Hull City Council are looking for businesses to take part in a mentoring programme to encourage aspiring young people to start their own businesses.
Young entrepreneurs benefit greatly from the support of business mentors who play a crucial part in the development and success of their company, and it also gives mentors an opportunity to be recognised for the work they are doing in the local community.
Hannah Crookes, Volunteer Coordinator at the John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank and Vice-Chair of Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership added:
"The work is highly satisfying for volunteers, and often inspirational, in both understanding and witnessing first-hand how young people overcome seemingly insurmountable hurdles, both in their business and private lives in order that they can create their own jobs."
"Invariably, the clients are incredibly grateful for the time provided by the volunteers. I have certainly found my time as a mentor for the JCYEB very rewarding."
If you are a business or have experience in running a business, are willing to share your drive and enthusiasm and are able to meet once a month, we want to hear from you.
