The US in Schools Mentoring team presented the much acclaimed Mentor of the Month (MOTM) prize to Grace Coffey. As December’s MOTM we asked Grace to complete 5 Minutes, 5 Questions, and here is how she answered:

graceWhat are you studying?
English Language & Literature

Where are you from?
Derby

Where are you mentoring?
Firth Park Academy

Why did you become a mentor?
From doing other volunteering and mentoring I knew I wanted to gain more experience in schools to help me decide if I want to teach after I leave University. I chose the US in Schools Team as you have amazing support around you which means you can be the best mentor you can be.

What is the best thing about mentoring?
We’ve only been mentoring for a few months but I can already see the difference it is making. The young people I mentor seem so much more confident in their own futures and it is so rewarding to be able to help them reach their full potentials.


If you would like to take part in ‘5 Minutes 5 Questions’ then drop us a tweet @SheffOutreach and we will be in touch.
