Volunteer Mentor Role

  • VO62225


As a Sported volunteer you will support a member who needs advice in your area of expertise (e.g. business, fundraising) There are 2 types of support you can offer: Light Touch Support - Offering short term support for example via phone or email from a member or delivering a workshop. Mentor Placement - supporting a member over a series of months through a period of change or development.
While most of Sported members are knowledgeable and passionate about their sport, and working with young people in their club, they often lack skills, time and networks they need to make their clubs sustainable and effective. That's where Sported volunteers come in.
