ParliaMentors 2015/16 – Applications Now Open!

Do you see yourself as a future community or political leader? Would you like to develop your skills through a fullyfunded, year-long programme? How often do you get the chance to be mentored by an MP?  
ParliaMentors is a UN Award winning leadership programme where teams of university students of different faiths and non-religious beliefs collaborate to create real social change while being mentored by a local MP.  
Through expert-led training, support from local and national NGOs and opening up access to Westminster, ParliaMentors gives students the networks and skills they need to affect real change in their communities, in their careers and in the political arena.  
On the programme, you will: 
  • See politics in action: Gain a unique insight into the political process while being mentored by MPs and Peers. 
  • Create social change: Work in mixed-belief teams to create social action projects with support from leading charities. 
  • Develop leadership skills: Learn through direct experience, expert-led training workshops and events. 
  • Build networks: Create new professional and personal links and join our 300-strong global network of young leaders.

ParliaMentors runs alongside the academic year, starting in September 2015 and running until June 2016. You must therefore be a current student next academic year to apply. The deadline for applications is Friday 27th March, but places are limited so apply as soon as possible  
This video also gives a great idea of what the programme is all about.
