Project ReMake is rapidly expanding to offer courses and mentoring in partnership with two organisations, Capital City College and Visionnaires. Read more about opportunities to mentor below.
You can either apply to be a General Mentor (through Project ReMake) or a Business Mentor (through Visionnaires). A General Mentor provides ex-offenders who are registered with one of our online courses with accountability and support to ensure that they are able to take steps forward in their life. You can read more about becoming a General Mentor here. A Visionnaires Business Mentor works through Visionnaires to help start-ups from the most diverse parts of our community. You can learn more on the Visionnaires website.
We recommend that all mentoring is done remotely via Zoom/FaceTime.
We strongly recommend you read the following articles and watch the videos provided by the Telemachus Network prior to applying to be a mentor:
