Mentor

Are you:


  • Able to relate well to others?
  • Good at working through problems?
  • Committed and reliable?
  • Able to provide insight from your personal experiences?


We want to ensure that our mentors are representative of the girls we support as this increases the success and impact of the mentoring relationship. At The Girls' Network, we say "you can't be what you can't see". This means we seek to find relatable, real-life role models for the girls to act as their mentors.


For this reason we encourage mentor applications from people who identify as having come from a low-income household (perhaps eligible for free school meals at school / college), care leavers and women of colour. If you do not identify as being from one of these groups we still welcome your application and look forward to hearing from you.
