BORIS’S INSPIRATIONAL MENTORING SCHEME GOES FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH

Boris’s inspirational scheme to help young black boys stay out of trouble in the capital has already resulted in 1,700 volunteers coming forward to act as mentors.  The volunteers help troubled kids, who lack a strong father figure, with homework, reading and sports activities.

The scheme is backed by ex-footballer Ian Wright and it is running in seven London boroughs.  Our Mayor and the legendary Ray Lewis,  (responsible for turning round the lives of so many young boys), launched the scheme today in East London.  The London Standard reported: “Aaron Harriott, 17, was mentored as an 11-year-old and said he now hopes to join the scheme to help other youngsters. He said: “I used to get into a lot of trouble when I was young – for fighting, for stealing, for all sorts of things. God only knows what would have happened to me if I hadn’t got a mentor. I definitely want to be a mentor now. It helps young kids so much.”

Mr Harriott, who now plays football for Stevenage Borough, added: “It was nice to talk to someone who wasn’t a parent but had my interests at heart. I think it’s really important for people my age to have someone show them what they can do with their lives. I play professional football, which is my dream job.”

It is these sort of initiatives from the Mayor that are a step forward in changing society for the better.
