Gavin Webster, ex professional rugby professional plus Haringey abob mentor, and mentee Dean O’Brien tell us about the value of mentoring in the Huffington Post.
Haringey abob mentor and ex pro rugby player, Gavin Webster tells the Telegraph what it’s like to be a mentor as well as how abob support the evolution of male maturity in mentors and mentees.
The Eastbourne Herald (in fact the writer was abob’s Patrick McCurry) charts the trajectory of George Ross, 20, who was convicted for robbery after the death of his father, and the support that abob have given him in terms of different choices in his life. Nick Pharoah was his mentor.
22 year old Jake Gynn tells the Eastbourne Herald how the Quest helped him let go of the deep sadness and guilt he’d been carrying around since he was a child.
The Guardian’s ‘Comment is Free’ section invited Abob’s CEO, Nathan Roberts, to write about why the prison crisis is happening. Nathan explains: “Young men don’t mature psychologically until their mid-20s. Condemning so many to the toxic environment of our jails is a recipe for re-offending and suicide” in a very strong piece.
Inside Time is the national prison newspaper, this month’s edition reports very powerfully and positively on Haringey’s abob and their activities.
