Help local youngsters as a mentor

by The Diana Award

We’re on a mission to break the stereotypical view of who a mentor can be- we welcome applicants of all industries and levels of experience.
This is a great opportunity for you to gain skills in communication and leadership, building empathy and understanding of issues and barriers facing young people in their communities.
Ideally once a week for twelve weeks, sessions last around an hour and are delivered in local schools. We will train you to be a mentor and provide ongoing support for the duration of the programme.

Organisation description
