Children’s charity Mentor Link is recruiting Volunteer Mentors from Wem and surrounding area to provide one to one support to children and young people in schools. Mentor Link are keen to hear from people in business and the community, who would be interested in becoming a Volunteer Mentor to support a young person to achieve their full potential. The mentors are specially trained to listen to and support young people and aim to improve their self- esteem and engagement in learning. The charity has an excellent track record of success in achieving positive outcomes with children and young people.
If you like a challenge and want to give something back to help make a difference to the lives of vulnerable young people then we would like to hear from you. As one year 9 girl wrote to her mentor, “I am glad I met you as you have allowed me to be who I am today and without you who knows where I would be right now.”
No previous experience of mentoring is needed as we are looking for people with life experiences and enthusiasm who can give an hour a week. We have short films available on our website about our mentors who have supported young people, so for further information see www.mentorlink.org.uk
As part of our Induction programme Mentor Link requires 2 character references, enhanced DBS clearance, Induction and on-going training and travel expenses. We have a dedicated and experienced team of staff to support you in your role.
