Three young women from Christian, Jewish and Muslim backgrounds have graduated this month in the ‘ParliaMentors’ Programme under the tutelage of local MP, Lynne Featherstone.
The participants have met regularly over the academic year with Lynne Featherstone locally and in Parliament as part of a mentoring programme organised by the Three Faiths Forum. The aim of the scheme is to bring people of different faiths together and to inspire them to get involved in politics and social engagement.
Ms Featherstone looks forward to participating in next year’s scheme.
Lynne Featherstone MP comments:
“It was a real pleasure to mentor these three ferociously talented young women from such diverse backgrounds.I have no doubt they will be going on to greater things, so watch this space.
“I am certain that their shared experience with people from different faiths will help them appreciate how much we have in common and what can be achieved together.
“I would encourage any undergraduates locally who are interested in this or any of the other mentoring programmes to contact the Three Faiths Forum.It really is a fantastic opportunity.”
