ParliaMentors - Virtual Opportunity

Details Hide[-]

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 MPs.

Through expert-led training, support from local and national NGOs and access to Westminster, ParliaMentors gives students the networks and skills they need to effect real change in their communities, in their careers and in the political arena.

Students on the programme 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 with institutions and organisations and by joining our Alumni Network.

Since 2007, over 500 people have graduated from the programme and now form our vibrant alumni network, continuing to engage in the many opportunities on offer to former participants.

“This is a huge opportunity for you. I want to pay tribute to the Faith & Belief Forum for this initiative… and I think it is very, very important. It is a great badge of honour for you that you are part of it.” – Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP
