Volunteer Mentor

  • VO87293


Description

Project Scotland supports young people across Scotland to reach their potential through tailored support, mentoring, and the opportunity to experience the benefits of a volunteering placement. We are searching for people to commit to spending one hour a week for a minimum of 6 months, mentoring the young people that Project Scotland works with. The support the mentor offers is dependent on what the volunteer finds useful and might include: helping your mentee to identify their skills and strengths, reflecting on their placement and working with them to develop their CV and interview skills.

Organisation aims and objectives

We provide a personal plan for each young person. This includes a volunteer placement with a local charity and one-to-one mentoring, as well as ongoing support from a member of our team. We are there for our young people, every step of the way, even after a volunteer placement comes to an end. Because of that, 78% of our volunteers continue on to something better . We work in several localities with staff based across the Highlands, Glasgow and the West, Dundee and Angus, Edinburgh, Perth and Kinross, and Dumfries and Galloway.
