In a heartening acknowledgment of the profound impact made through a community mentoring program, Balfour Beatty Living Places, in partnership with Goal 17, has been shortlisted for a prestigious global award. This recognition reflects the remarkable collaborative efforts put forth by both organizations in transforming the lives of disadvantaged young people in partnership with the charitable arm of Southampton Football Club's, Saints Foundation.
Several years ago, Balfour Beatty Living Places, Goal 17, and Saints Foundation embarked on a journey to create a lasting difference in the lives of underprivileged young individuals. The initiative involved training an exceptional group of volunteer mentors drawn from Balfour Beatty's staff and supply chain. These mentors were thoughtfully paired with young people facing adversity, setting the stage for transformative experiences.
The success of this partnership didn't go unnoticed, and last week, Balfour Beatty Living Places received the well-deserved honor of being shortlisted for a global award recognising organisations for their significant social impact. The nomination underscores the tremendous contributions and social value that both Balfour Beatty's dedicated staff, Saints Foundation and Goal 17's leadership have brought to these community mentoring programs.
Throughout the years, this collaboration has exemplified the spirit of giving back to the community. Balfour Beatty Living Places' staff wholeheartedly dedicated their time and support, working hand in hand with Goal 17 to empower and uplift the lives of young people. This partnership serves as a prime example of how corporate responsibility extends beyond business operations.
Together, Goal 17, Saints Foundation and Balfour Beatty Living Places have harnessed the power of mentorship, demonstrating that corporate and community partnerships can lead to meaningful, life-changing outcomes.
As the global award ceremony approaches, fingers are crossed and hopes are high for Balfour Beatty Living Places to secure a well-deserved victory. The dedication to creating a positive impact in the community serves as a shining example of corporate social responsibility in action.
The journey is a testament to the transformative power of mentorship and community collaboration. It is a reminder that when organizations and individuals come together with a shared purpose, they have the potential to change lives and inspire positive change on a global scale.
We eagerly await the outcome of this global award, celebrating the exceptional contributions of Balfour Beatty Living Places, Goal 17, and their profound impact on the lives of young people.
