Proud to be a social enterprise



01 April 2020 0 comments

We are proud to announce we are now a Community Interest Company.

What is a Community Interest Company?

A Community Interest Company (CIC) is a type of social enterprise. Our stated mission, known as a community interest statement lays out a clear definition of our aims and objectives.

This means any revenue we generate goes back into the CIC to further those aims and objectives. We are overseen by the CIC regulator which is a body tasked with ensuring CICs act responsibly.

Why we are proud to be a CIC

We believe in a world where purpose comes before profit.

Young people are 25 per cent of our population but 100 per cent of the future. We believe in the future and that with support young people can develop the skills and resilience they need to face and shape that future.

By sharing their stories with peers, young people can support each other’s goals and aspirations.

How do we achieve our vision?

A focus on guiding not dictating

MNTL is a community for 16-24 years olds who share their own content. These are real lives, real stories by real people. This is their community, their stories, their opinions.

A focus on building meaningful & long-lasting partnerships

We build robust relationships with Everyday Role Models, external partner agencies and the communities around us to understand and have access to the information we need to continue to deliver our vision.

A focus on creating opportunity

We create opportunity by enabling young people to tap into their communities through telling their stories. Our commitment to this is reflected in the work we are doing with the RSA, Plymouth City Council and RIO on the Cities of Learning Open Badges initiative, which you can learn more about here.

A focus on helping others

By focusing on living and breathing Purpose Before Profit we build meaningful relationships and create a framework of support and signposting for young people.
