Mentoring Children and Young People aged 8 - 14

  • VO66624


We’re looking for enthusiastic and open-minded adults from all walks of life to volunteer to work with vulnerable children and young people aged 8 - 14 who are looked after at home. Your role will be to work one to one with the young person using your own life experiences and skills to encourage them to achieve their goals.

No particular experience or skills are necessary - but a strong belief in the potential of young people is essential. Full training will be given, and once you're matched with a young person we'll expect you to be committed to them for at least a year.
