Description

Volunteering Matters is a national volunteering charity. We recognise the potential our Young People across Clackmannanshire possess. They have aspirations and goals like us all – but may not currently have the skillset, tools or guidance needed to turn these into a reality. The effects of COVID-19 have seen a large number of Young People across Clackmannanshire experiencing social isolation, loneliness, poor mental and physical health and without a ‘Positive Destination’.
Equip Mentoring uses the power of volunteers to support young people who are not in employment, education or training (NEET) or who need additional guidance and support to enter the employment market, further education or training. We recruit, train and support Mentors who are matched 1:1 with a young person, using their life experience to act as a positive and reliable role model.

Volunteers meet with their young person on a regular basis, the length of time you will mentor them for will depend on the specific goals the young person has in mind, matches can last up to 12 months. These meetings will be virtual at the moment due to COVID-19 Restrictions. Volunteer mentors provide practical and emotional support, helping young people to make informed choices about their future and guiding them along the way. Mentors help young people develop their confidence and resilience to adapt to changes and fulfil their full potential.
