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, Marlybone and Kentish Town easily.

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