Description

Mentoring Young Talent (MYT) is seeking new volunteer mentors…

MYT works with young people between the age of 12-26yrs, supporting them 1-1 to gain confidence, explore their strengths, help make future plans to either increase their educational attainment or secure a destination like work, training or further education.

Our younger project (12-16yrs) provides mentors to care experienced school attendees while our project for 16-26 year olds aims to support young people locally who may be unemployed, struggling to identify their next steps, need to strengthen their skills and gain from the interaction with a positive role model.

Everyone is welcome to apply to be a mentor, it’s a great way to give back, support local young people and share your knowledge and experience.

We provide training, support and fund some great activities to take part in alongside your matched young person. This volunteer opportunity is also a great career development opportunity, increasing your own employability skills as a result.

During Covid 19 we have seen many young people’s future plans dashed, unemployment rise and increased insecurity for this age group.

Mentoring provides a positive way to help this generation, If you can manage between 1-2 hours a week please get in touch. We are seeking volunteers of all ages and life experience and have young people waiting.
