David Horne was passionate about the benefits of mentoring for young people. In response to the boom in popularity of the internet and the increased need for child protection, he wanted to provide a secure internet based application that enabled mentoring via e-mail.

eMentor Pro was designed and written in mid 2002 by David, together with another former IBM colleague, with secondary school students in mind to help with their personal/ professional development, confidence and self-esteem. It also offers the opportunity for the students to be paired with experienced business people to give them a better perspective of the world of work and to ask work-related questions.

Following David's untimely death in April 2009 his family have picked up the torch which was his passion and will be seeking new opportunities to help young people develop their potential. They will be building on the success of eMentor Pro and looking at projects involving local communities and educational establishments.
