About this event

Community-based youth work plays a key role in supporting young people and their mental health. The Y2Bee Peer Mentor Programme trains young people aged 14-18 to support other young people in their community and their mental health.

Youth workers from Youth Scotland member groups can register young people from their groups interested in taking part in the programme. The young participants will receive bespoke training by mental health charity Place2Be.

The training consists of three online sessions and four online modules covering various themes related to mentoring for young people. Each module is broken down into cards with information, activities and videos to support their learning. Young people and their Youth Workers should be able to attend all online sessions.
