Transitions Mentor

Volunteers support young people (age14-18) making the transition into adulthood. They give 1 to 3 hours a week to meet 1-to-1 with young people, usually in a school near them, for up to an hour a week over half a school year. They complete ‘Future Me’ together, a programme designed by Mindroom . Young people following the programme develop a clearer idea of what they want for themselves, improve their self-esteem, and have more confidence in choosing & taking their next steps.
