Mentoring Young Talent (MYT) is seeking new volunteer mentors…
MYT works with young people between the age of 12-26yrs, supporting them 1-1 to gain confidence, explore their strengths, help make future plans to either increase their educational attainment or secure a destination like work, training or further education.
Our younger project (12-16yrs) provides mentors to care experienced school attendees while our project for 16-26 year olds aims to support young people locally who may be unemployed, struggling to identify their next steps, need to strengthen their skills and gain from the interaction with a positive role model.
Everyone is welcome to apply to be a mentor, it’s a great way to give back, support local young people and share your knowledge and experience.
We provide training, support and fund some great activities to take part in alongside your matched young person. This volunteer opportunity is also a great career development opportunity, increasing your own employability skills as a result.
During Covid 19 we have seen many young people’s future plans dashed, unemployment rise and increased insecurity for this age group.
Mentoring provides a positive way to help this generation, If you can manage between 1-2 hours a week please get in touch. We are seeking volunteers of all ages and life experience and have young people waiting.

Aberlour Sycamore Services offer a safe and loving place to live for children and young people who have experienced abuse or trauma. As a volunteer Befriender, you can play an active role in supporting a child or young person emotionally, socially and helping them to enjoy a range of opportunities and activities. Volunteer Befrienders spend regular 1:1 time with a child or young person to build up a trusting relationship, to develop interests and hobbies, and to be a consistent figure in their life to support them through life transitions.
Children and young people living in our Sycamore Residential Services can benefit hugely from having a Befriender. Spending time on a 1:1 basis allows children and young people to develop their communication skills and build their confidence and self-esteem through sharing in a fun activity.
By volunteering as a Befriender in our Sycamore Residential Services, you can gain valuable experience of working with children and young people and developing an awareness of the issues affecting them. Volunteers can gain a sense of satisfaction knowing they are helping others to develop new skills and achieve their potential, while developing their own confidence and having fun. Volunteers are valued members of Sycamore Residential teams.
Volunteer Befrienders typically spent time with a child or young person once every 2-3 weeks, during evenings and weekends.
