The Way Youth Zones Mentoring Programme is dedicated to providing opportunities to individuals within the community who want to give something back and change a young persons life. Volunteer mentors come from all walks of life and all have something different to offer.
We recognise the importance of mentors and are dedicated to ensuring that mentors:
- Are provided with continuous CPD information, advice and guidance with many mentors utilising this as a placement for a course or degree. Lots of our past mentors have also progressed into paid work as a result of the experience they gained on the programme.
- Are provided with in-depth training prior to starting their role and receives ongoing support from the team throughout.
- Get the chance to engage in regular social activities such as meals out & trips to theatre, either free or at a significantly reduced cost as a way of increasing social interaction between mentors and as a thank you for your hard work.
