SummaryBecome a volunteer mentor for young people in Hertfordshire and support them to overcome challenges, achieve their goals and reach their potential.
As a volunteer mentor you would meet with your young person once a week for up to an hour, at a time and place in the community convenient to you both. Usually the mentoring relationship is for 6 months but can be longer or shorter depending on the need.
Following an initial 2 day training programme and required checks, volunteer mentors are matched with young people based on personality and interests but also by location.
As a volunteer mentor you would gain trust from the young person you are working with and provide valuable support. You would be able to help them work towards goals, overcome challenges, give advice or just provide a listening ear.
You will be supported by a Mentoring Co-ordinator and ongoing training and support groups are provided.
