MENTER Youth Strategy

What is the MENTER Youth Strategy?

Launched in April 2011, the first MENTER Youth Strategy outlines race inequalities BME young people face in the East of England and how MENTER plans to tackle these

Who is it for?

The Strategy is designed to help policy makers, practitioners and partnerships tackle race inequalities with BME children and young people and achieve long-term positive change

It should be of interest to anyone who is working with BME children and young people.

How was it developed?

A MENTER partnership called “Empowerment through Participation” started the MENTER Youth Project via the DCLG Tackling Race Inequalities programme. Out of this a multi-agency network called BEMCYSN emerged, drawn from the BME third sector and academics expert in this field. MENTER shared learning with these groups and BME young people to develop the first MENTER Youth Strategy published in April 2011.

How will it be implemented?

A Partnerships & Youth Officer shall work to implement the strategy in partnership with a strategy implementation group, the BEMCYPSN. The MENTER board will monitor to the Youth Strategy Implementation by reviewing the Strategy on a six-monthly basis to ensure that progress is made against the strategy's objectives.
