Elevate | Life-skills & mentoring for care-leavers in London


Sign up to our Elevate programme for care-leavers in London, to learn life-skills in cooking, networking, C.V. and personal statement writing, and work with a student mentor to help unlock your future goals and ambitions

Chi Chi’s Young Minds and AccessHE are excited to launch Elevate – a monthly mentoring and life-skills programme for care-leavers in the capital.

The life-skills sessions will take place monthly on Saturdays, and the mentoring sessions can be scheduled in flexibly each month in agreement with your mentor. To see a full list of programme dates, please click here.

During the programme you will discover a range of post-16 education and career pathways, including advice on apprenticeships, higher education, and what it’s like to work at a high-profile organisation. You’ll learn how to network, how to build an online presence, and how to apply to university – if you decide to follow this route.

This is a great opportunity to think about your next steps and to work closely with a matched mentor to help you meet your education and employment goals – all while connecting with others on the course and learning how to cook!

To apply, scroll down to complete a short registration form. The deadline to apply is midnight Sunday 14th January 2024.


Entry requirements: The programme is for care-leavers living in London, age 16-18 . To take part in the programme, you must be able to commit to the programme dates outlined in the Elevate programme document.
