Volunteer opportunity description

As a Mentor you will hold weekly sessions of 2-3 hours with  your mentee at a crucial time in their development.  
 
Through positive experiences and fun activities you will build confidence, resilience and aspirations. 
 
Sessions happen at the weekends and can be anything from a kick around in the local park to visiting a museum. We will provide £30 per month of expenses. 
 
You’ll experience London in a new way, through the eyes of a child.
 
One of our mentors Eric said, “I got involved because I liked the idea of a new start up charity. The children they are trying to work with, it’s an age which you can make a real difference and I really wanted to be part of it. 

I’m really enjoying mentoring - now he engages and I see his progress! He has great energy levels which picks me up at the weekend after a long week at work.”

We are looking for mentors across London but particularly those who can access Kings Cross/Euston easily.

Get in touch today (via the APPLY link above). Let’s start connecting for change.
