Mentoring Young People aged 11+

Young people may have a range of professionals working with them. However, it is recognized that having someone impartial to talk to and offer support can make a difference to self esteem and engagement.

Volunteers will be matched with young people and offer one to one support. This is likely to include: face to face meetings, supporting them to attend meetings and appointments and increasing their self esteem. A crucial aspect will be the ability to build positive relationships which allow young people to feel listened to and supported and continue as long as needed.

Skills

The Volunteer will:

  • Work with the volunteer coordinator to agree a match to young people.
  • Attend an initial meeting with the young person and Children’s Services worker to agree the type and frequency of support to be offered and agree ongoing meetings and support.
  • Discuss and agree information sharing with the young person and Children’s Services worker.
  • Meet with the young person and deliver the ongoing support agreed.
  • Record and share information as agreed.
  • Volunteers may work with more than one young person at a time (depending upon the time they are able to offer).
