Become a Mentor

Be a dough riser


About the Risers Programme…

The Risers Programme aims to help young refugees and those seeking asylum (aged 16-24) to have one-to-one employment mentor, receive employment-related trainings and gain work experience in one of our Breadwinners’ stalls. Another key aim of the programme is to improve young people’s confidence and expand their network during their time with Breadwinners. Although those currently seeking asylum are not allowed to work in the UK, our Risers programme will equip young people with knowledge, information and UK work experience. The programme will prepare them for their first job, when they receive their UK work permission.
