Young Person's Mentor

  • VO71265


Description

Would you like to support a young person on their journey to gaining new skills and experience, becoming more self-confident and achieving their goals? Mentoring with ProjectScotland is a unique opportunity to help a young person make the most of their voluntary placement and to support them to work out their next steps. 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.

If that sounds like something you'd like to get involved in, the best way to proceed is to fill out a brief form on our website: https://www.projectscotland.co.uk/mentors/apply/. If you have any questions please email our Mentor Manager Kasia at kasia.czarnecka@projectscotland.co.uk or give us a call on 0777 52 59 059.
