Member Volunteering Opportunities @ 13/10/21
Move On are currently recruiting for volunteer mentors. They match volunteer mentors to vulnerable young people aged 14-25 to support them to achieve goals and reach their full potential. The role of a mentor is to provide a supportive relationship to help connect the young person with social, cultural and leisure opportunities, then support them to build their confidence, skills, potential and positive social networks. Mentors and young people meet once a week to work together as a pair towards a goal of the young person’s choice. Young people often choose recreation or leisure goals, such as learning to play guitar, boxing lessons or taking a cookery class.
Full training will be provided via zoom and will consist of:
• An Introduction to mentoring
• Mental Health and Wellbeing
• Trauma Awareness
• Child Protection
• Boundaries and personal Safety
If you are interested or working with anyone who may be interested, please ask them to get in touch with Laura@moveon.org.uk for more information.
