Mentoring is a proven approach to drive rich learning and development for both mentees and mentors. 

Having a mentor can provide you with many advantages.

Volunteering as a mentor – what’s involved?

If you’ve ever thought about helping people around you and wondered “what can one person do?” – here’s an answer.

 

Just by giving time and space to talk to a person, young or old, you can make an enormous impact on them, their family, school and community.

Volunteers receive full training before they begin as a mentor, and continued supervision and support throughout the mentoring year.

 

Once you have completed training and passed the selection process, you are matched with a young person for a year-long relationship.

 

You arrange to meet once a week or so, doing things together and getting talking.
