Volunteer Mentor

The Mentoring Programme at OnSide WYC was established in 2015 and provides volunteer mentor support to vulnerable and at risk children and young people aged between 7 and 19 years old. It increases confidence, self-esteem and supports the child/young person to make positive choices through 1:1 support, befriending and fun activities. Over the last 5 years, over 300 children and young people from across Warrington have benefited from this service.

We are looking for a new team of Volunteer Mentors to act as role models and to support a young person through a difficult stage in their lives. Mentors must be age 19 years or older and be able to commit to meet with a young person for 1-2 hours per week for a number of pre-agreed months. With have various programmes at the club with 3-12 months’ time frame dependant on the commitment you can give.

No experience is necessary as full training will be given to all Mentors prior to being matched with a suitable young person. Training will include:

  • Introduction to Mentoring
  • Child Protection & Safeguarding
  • Professional Boundaries
  • Action Planning & Goal Setting
  • Communication Skills
  • Understanding Children & Young People

All Mentors will be supported and supervised throughout their journey with WYC and a written reference will be given after 12 months service.

This opportunity is not only a personally rewarding one, but it is a great way to enhance your skill set, explore new career options and improve your own employability.

Training dates are available throughout the year.
