‘Get into Work’ Mentoring Initiative

Launched in March 2021 in partnership with the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP), MyKindaFuture are delivering a UK-wide mission that is supporting unemployed 18-24 year olds into work and to succeed in their future careers.

Through Connectr, young jobseekers are given access to employer mentors and learning content to secure a role and thrive in it.

Companies already making a real difference to the young people who need it most

Why is this initiative so crucial?

Since March 2020:

1 in 3 18-24 year olds have either lost their job or been placed on furlough

35% of young people are earning less than they did prior to the pandemic

Young people are now 125% more likely to become unemployed than other age groups

How does it work?

Mentors are provided by employer organisations to give young people access to industry experts and learning content that can support them through their application journeys, and once they have secured a role.
All mentors are provided with training from MyKindaFuture’s talent experts and can commit to the opportunity in as little as 1 hour per week.

 

“My mentor gave me such helpful, insightful and specific advice and really made me more confident in what I would have to do for my interview.
He took a lot of time to message me really thorough and relevant information, and I am really grateful.”
