Become a Volunteer Mentor
Being a Kids Inspire Mentor is one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you will ever do.
- You can help to shape a young person’s future for the better, by supporting them and empowering them to achieve.
- You also have the opportunity for lots of fun and to share the kind of activities that you already like to do.
A volunteer mentor is a ‘professional friend’ who guides a young person by building trust and modelling positive behaviours in a fun and caring environment. An adult acting as a mentor gives a young person a safe place to discuss any issues they may be experiencing and will help them to access new experiences, have fun, explore new interests and develop new life skills.
This relationship can help build self-confidence and resilience, improving emotional wellbeing.
“After my experience today I am hoping to become a mentor, and volunteer more.” Lunch club volunteer
