PushFar and Goal 17 are delighted to announce a strategic partnership to further mentoring accessibility and delivery, across both organisations.

PushFar, a leading mentoring software business, will be providing Goal 17 clients on its nationally acclaimed IMPACT programme access to their technology, designed to help mentoring relationships to flourish through a host of features, including target and objective setting, intelligent mentor matching and mentor reporting. Goal 17, the UK’s number one sports-lead corporate mentoring programme, creates impact through community transformation, and will begin to roll-out a unique and customised instance of PushFar to programme attendees later this year.

The Goal 17 IMPACT programme takes corporate partners through a training and development masterclass focused on mentoring skills. After this, the corporate partners are introduced to, and sponsor, a group of 16-24 homeless and vulnerable young people on a transformational development programme, run by The Street Soccer Foundation (Goal 17’s charitable partner). Corporate clients are given an inspiring day at a Premier League Football Club stadium, that will make a lasting impact and their learning will continue throughout the following 10 weeks as Goal 17 support them in mentoring a young person.

PushFar’s technology offers an open network to more than 4,500 individuals across the UK and the wider-world currently, with mentoring relationships being formed daily. As well as this open network, PushFar provides a solution for organisations and businesses globally, looking to run and scale mentoring schemes effectively, to employees.

With the partnership, PushFar’s technology will further support the Goal 17 programmes and mentoring agenda, as well as being able to offer corporate clients with the same technology as an in-house solution once they have completed their IMPACT programme, allowing corporates to scale existing mentoring programmes, start new ones and reach a greater height with mentoring internally.

Of the partnership, PushFar CEO Ed Johnson said:

“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to partner with Goal 17 and offer them our technology. Mentoring makes sense for organisations, charities and companies everywhere, and the work that Goal 17 are doing reflects the real-world impacts, importance and successes of mentoring. Through this partnership we are confident that our platform and software will continue to develop and scale, as we continue to learn more about how every unique and personal mentoring relationship can be improved with technology – as we have already seen with the thousands of individuals on PushFar’s existing open network.”

Both companies will be working closely to ensure the highly customisable technology is adapted to Goal 17’s needs.

Fran Boorman, CEO of Goal 17, said:

“Despite the accolades we have already achieved for our award-winning mentoring programme we are continually looking for ways to push the boundaries and be the world leader in our space. Aligning ourselves with PushFar enables us not only to improve our client experience and continue to deliver a meaningful and impactful programme, but also to help demonstrate to our corporate clients how mentoring can be easily and seamlessly integrated into their organisations. Whilst helping support our young people our corporate clients also learn the vital skills to establish an internal mentoring culture and foster a mindset of social mobility.”
