Event description

Description

The Mentoring Programme at Onside Warrington Youth Club provides Volunteer Mentor support for vulnerable and at risk children and young people aged between 7 and 18 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 course of the next 3 years, 150 children and young people from across Warrington will benefit 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 what can be a difficult stage in their life, inspiring them to achieve, and encouraging them to develop, grow, and learn new things. 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 approximately 12 months. (3-6months options available)

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
  • Budgeting and Independent Living Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Understanding Children & Young People

All Mentors will be supported and supervised throughout their journey with Warrington Youth Club 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 employability.

Training dates available are:

Tuesday 10th January 2018 - 10am to 4pm

Saturday 3rd February 2018 - 10am to 4pm

Wednesday 7th March 2018 - 10am to 4pm

Saturday 14th April 2018 - 10am to 4pm
