Young Person's Mentor

  • VO58214


Description

Social isolation and loneliness is a huge issue in the Moray area. As a volunteer mentor you will be matched with a young person who you would spend regular time on a 1:1 basis, working towards building a trusting relationship. Right now, mentoring is also available online -- so if volunteers prefer and feel they are better suited to offer online support, they can. Volunteers who mentor in person also take part in activities that is of interest to your young person, such as cooking, sports, and crafts. You can also introduce them to new activities to help them learn new skills and develop new interests.
Through having a mentor, a young person can develop confidence and self-belief to achieve their life goals. As a volunteer you will gain practical experience of spending time with children and increase your knowledge about the issues affecting young people. You will meet a range of new people and be filled with a sense of satisfaction, knowing that you have helped make a difference in a child’s life.
