What is Mentoring?

More and more young people are getting involved in mentoring. So what is it and how might it help you?

Many schools have mentoring programmes where adults from business or the community volunteer to become mentors to pupils. They support you by listening one to one, offering encouragement, information and friendship.

What does a Mentor do?

  • Listens to you and offers support
  • Helps you organise your time
  • Shares experience of work
  • Helps you with your studies
  • Helps with anxieties or difficulties
  • Talks to you as a trusted adult
  • Helps with relationships and self esteem

What’s in it for you?

  • You can be yourself
  • You will receive individual attention
  • As long as you are open and honest with your mentor it could change your life!

When and Where?

  • In school hours
  • In a community setting out of school hours
  • See your mentor every week for up to an hour

Interested? What do you do next?

What Mentees have told us:

“Mentoring has helped me sort myself  out and boost my confidence and gives great advice to my problems. It has been a great help. I feel relaxed and safe. I felt there was always someone to help me through everything. We had a good relationship and thank you so much for everything.”

“My mentor has helped me with sorting issues and I liked having someone to talk to. I feel my mentor has helped me talk about what I was upset about and this helped me feel much better. It has made me feel happy and I have someone to talk to if I need it.”
