Children Deserve Excellence

Every child deserves outstanding mentoring. Every Child Needs a Mentor is here to make that happen.

Wouldn’t it be great for every child and young person to have an effective mentor?

In careers such as sport, performing arts, and business, high-quality mentoring is provided. These professionals have access to mentoring not because they’re failing, but because they have potential, so why don’t all young people have access to the same opportunities?

The video below explains more.

Effective mentoring enables young people to fulfil their potential. 

Founded 2009, by entrepreneur and 2x Mentor of the Year winner mentor Herman Stewart, Every Child Needs a Mentor (ECNM) was created to address mentoring inequality to ensure that every child can experience life-changing mentoring – regardless of their background or abilities. Whether you’re a parent, school, local authority or company working with young people, we can help you. With our ABM methodology and proven track record of supporting young people, we know our methods work. But that’s not all; we’ve developed an award-winning mentorship framework that can be delivered both in-person and online.

Some of the amazing feedback we’ve received

“I would highly recommend this innovative and experienced company in working with young people.” 

Claire Martin, Sandwell Children’s Trust

“Every Child Needs a Mentor has not only improved the attitude and outlook of students but has also facilitated opportunities for them to present to and work with influential community figures. The students are now significantly more enthusiastic and willing to engage within school.”

Jennifer McCann, Associate Headteacher

“The year six cohort took their SATs and outperformed all predictions. The pupils were motivated, aspirant and supportive of each other – and parents were strongly engaged. I cannot recommend ECNM highly enough. In fact, we have engaged ECNM again for the next year.”

Heather Phillips, Head teacher

“Just completed two days of training with ECNM. I was very impressed with the breadth and depth of the coverage given to the subject of mentoring and the varied approaches, used successfully, to engage the trainee mentors throughout. This is a company that not only understands mentoring but also the practical requirements of the settings in which mentoring takes place.” 

Ruth Poole, ex-Assistant Head teacher
