"Since starting to work with us Jack has worked with Sam to build his social confidence and resulted in a trial shift for part time work"
Caudwell Youth mentors at-risk young people aged 11-24 years into new futures over a period of 2 years. They currently work across Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes.
Meet ‘Sam’ (20) and Mentor Jack from Luton. Sam has learning difficulties and came to Caudwell Youth as he was struggling to make friends and become independent.
“He is at college and volunteers once a week at a youth centre, since starting to work with us Jack has worked with Sam to build his social confidence and resulted in a trial shift for part time work. They both love computing and Jack is supporting Sam to build his own pc using his knowledge”.
This is just one example of how Caudwell Youth's mentoring model is person-centred, and how they match young people and volunteer mentors based on interests, skills and personality. This ensures the young person receives support completely tailored to them. "We always keep the young person’s best interests at hear"
