intandem, Scotland’s mentoring programme for young people, brings together vulnerable young people with a mentor to build a consistent and trusting relationship, and improve their chances in life. The Scottish Government has appointed Inspiring Scotland to lead the development of the intandem programme. Move On are responsible for delivering the service in the Lothians and, in partnership with YMCA Edinburgh, the City of Edinburgh.
We’re looking for enthusiastic and open-minded adults from all walks of life to volunteer to work with children and young people aged 8 - 14 who are looked after at home. You’ll be working on a one to one basis with the young person, using your own life experiences and skills to encourage them to achieve their goals.
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.
