Initially as a teacher, Becca was distressed to realise that many of her students, especially the girls, lacked confidence and aspirations in life. She wanted to show them what possibilities were out there and how to get to where they might want to be, but being a very busy teacher…..with planning and marking, time was so tight!
Now, The Girls Network inspire and empower girls from the least advantaged communities by connecting them with a mentor and a network of professional female role models. The charity works with over 700 girls in London, Portsmouth, Brighton, Liverpool…. and will be starting up in Manchester in January.
Listen to our podcast to hear more about Becca’s story, learn how mentoring can build skills, confidence and resilience. Can we all benefit from mentoring? Is it possible that skills that you may take for granted can be life changing for others?
