Current opportunity

We are looking for volunteers who are good listeners and who can support a young person who may be experiencing a hard time. Adult volunteers, from all backgrounds and experiences, are recruited, trained, and supported by Young People. Intandem volunteer mentors are chosen for their qualities of commitment, reliability, and stability. The mentor and the young person will spend around 2 hours a week engaging in various fun activities. The arrangements are flexible, and the pair will usually choose activities together.
