Mosaic was founded exactly five years ago this week, by HRH The Prince of Wales.
The Prince’s vision was to create an organisation that offered a helping hand to young people growing up in disadvantaged communities, by connecting them with inspirational role models who had themselves hailed from similar backgrounds.
Five years on, Mosaic have enabled hundreds of successful businessmen and women to mentor many thousands of young people – encouraging them to set their sights high, pursue dreams and grow in confidence.
Mosaic celebrated their five year anniversary on 1st November with an event at Apax Partners.
Sadiq Khan MP was invited to become a Mosaic Ambassador and this was announced at the event last night.
The new Ambassadors will act as high-profile advocates for Mosaic’s work.
Sadiq Khan MP said:
“It is a huge privilege to be asked to be a Mosaic Ambassador. I have followed their fantastic work over the last five years and have worked with them when a Government Minister and as a MP.
“I am really pleased to have been asked to be an Ambassador and readily accepted. It is an honour to be the only politician to be a Mosaic Ambassador.
“It is really important to provide role models for young people and this is something Mosaic has excelled in over their five year history. There is still a lot to be done to inspire young people and I am looking forward to working closely with Mosaic, young Britons and The Prince of Wales on this in the future”.
Jonathan Freeman, Mosaic National Director, said:
“I am thrilled that Sadiq has become one of our new Ambassadors. Sadiq has supported Mosaic since the very start, seeing the promise of our work and helping us at every step to deliver that promised. His championing of our work has been powerful throughout.
“On a personal level, Sadiq has provided me with wise counsel, moral support and encouragement, for which I am hugely grateful.”
