Mentor A Young Person At Risk Of Offending

The Volunteer mentor role includes supporting a child or young person at risk of offending of re offending. Volunteer mentors support a mentee on a one to one basis, within the community.

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

Training is due to start 1st March 2022

Interviews will be held in February (so if you are interested, please get in touch urgently)
