Could you help empower girls in your community?

by YMCA Black Country Group

The Y’s Girls mentoring programme matches volunteer mentors with young girls aged 9-14 years old to support them to be their best. You will be assigned to a local Project Coordinator who will tell you more about Y’s Girls mentoring, as well as discuss your interests and availability. You will then be matched with a young person as your mentee. As a mentor, you will be offered a full package of ongoing training and support for your personal and professional development, to help you and the young person get the most out of the mentoring process. Over a 12 month period, you will regularly meet with your young person and work together to identify achievable goals to focus on. These goals should empower the young person, building their resilience and enabling them to lead fulfilling lives. As a mentor, you can also help the young person to access activities and services, and try new things.

Lend a hand at our popular Bike Project

by Brushstrokes

At Brushstrokes Community Project, we run the Brushspokes Bike Project which provides our diverse set of service users with refurbished second-hand bikes, bike repair and in 2022 we also offered led bike rides, learn to ride sessions and bicycle maintenance classes. We’re looking for volunteers to support this increasingly popular project. We are particularly looking for volunteers to help out at our regular bicycle repair sessions, and help organise led rides. Knowledge about bicycles or bike repair isn’t essential – we equally value people’s willingness to get involved, their love of cycling and their tea making abilities.
