For schools What we do for schools Activate mentoring The award winning Activate Mentoring Programme is now going into its fourth academic year. This year there has been an 80% increase in the number of schools across the Solent area signing up to the Activate Mentoring Programme with EBP South. Schools recognise the value of 1-1 mentoring and the support a business mentor can bring.
