'As a mentor you will meet with a young person and build a positive relationship with them in order to support them to achieve their goals.'
The Volunteering Service works with local and national volunteering providers to offer students activities to enrich their lives. Move On have an exciting new opportunity for students, as volunteer mentors.
'As a mentor you will meet with a young person and build a positive relationship with them in order to support them to achieve their goals. Goals are as varied and individual as young people themselves!
Goals can be leisure or skill-based, such as learning to play guitar, boxing or cookery; employability-based such as researching and applying for employment, training and education opportunities; or a personal skill such as developing the confidence to order a cup of coffee independently or self-travel on the bus.
Together you will plan how to achieve the goal and review progress they make.'
You will receive full training, including Mental Health Awareness, Child Protection, Confidentiality, Boundaries and Goal Setting.
