Become a partner school or college

Arts Emergency partners with schools and colleges in Brighton, London, Manchester and Merseyside to support mentoring opportunities for students aged 16-18.

This is a free service for schools that guarantees several arts or humanities mentors for your students. The programme contributes towards your school meeting Gatsby benchmarks 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Arts Emergency mentor pairs meet once a month over a year and work towards goals based on that individual student’s needs. After the year of mentoring is complete Arts Emergency will continue to support students until their 26th birthday with opportunities, guidance and work experience.
