Project Scotland

Project Scotland helps young people between 16 and 30 to achieve their goals via volunteering for a 3rd sector organisation. Project Scotland also works with partners across Scotland on different projects and initiatives, supporting and empowering people to get on in life.

Current opportunity

Are you looking for a rewarding way of sharing your experiences and life skills in order to make a positive impact in your community and help tackle child poverty? This is the opportunity for you! Part of the Parental Employment Support (PES) programme, Project Scotland is now recruiting volunteer mentors to support an individual in their community to overcome barriers they face in sustaining jobs or progressing in work. Our PES mentors offer one-to-one support to a local parent (mentee) they are matched with for 1 hour every 1-2 weeks. This role will involve getting to know your mentee and the challenges they may face, discussing their future goals, sharing your own experiences or skills and ultimately champion them to progress in life and work. Our volunteers do not need to have any specific career experience or qualification – just a positive and empathetic mindset and a passion for helping others to succeed.
