An idea of a mentoring session may include playing pool, enjoying a trip to the cinema, participating in sports etc.
Mentors and mentees are matched based upon location, hobbies, interests and personality.
- Full training will be given and no experience is necessary
- We will review each person on an individual basis
- Once you are matched with a young person all expenses will be covered and you will be required to submit these on a monthly basis
- Volunteers will be committed who could support a young person between 1-3 hours per week for a 12 month period
- As we work with young people who are often vulnerable and have a number of professional adults who have been in and out of their relationship
- It is important that mentors are aware of the level of commit the Northumbria Coalition Against Crime require, as a relationship ending earlier than planned can have a detrimental impact upon the young person
