Come and find out more about being a Chance UK mentor in Enfield or Waltham Forest.
Each Chance UK mentor meets a child who has behavioural difficulties for 2-4 hours once a week, for one year. Mentor and child do activities together such as sports, visiting museums, creating a scrapbook… anything that will enthuse and engage a child.
The mentor will use specific techniques to build the child’s self-esteem, so that their education, family life and friendships all change for the better. Not only does this improve the child’s life and their prospects, but their parent/carer, teacher, siblings and classmates also benefit from the positive changes the child makes.
Mentoring can be an incredibly rewarding experience for you, too – you’ll develop new skills and meet new people while making a real difference to a child’s life. What’s more, you will have lots of fun doing it!
