Worth Unlimited is a youth work charity, and at the Loughton branch, Spark, we are looking for volunteers from the local community to spare an hour a week to support young people aged 11-23 as part of our mentoring programme.
Mentoring is an informal way of supporting a young person to deal with any challenges or issues they may be facing, and mentors work with young people on a one-to-one basis for as long as is needed.
Mentoring can boost a young person's self-esteem, help them build resilience and boost their confidence. Mentoring can also be hugely rewarding for the mentor.
Mentoring sessions take place either at Spark's offices in Loughton Youth Centre, 106 Borders Lane, Loughton IG10 3SB, or in the young person's school.
The ability to relate well to young people. Patience and calmness are also desirable.
Full training will be given. Volunteers will be DBS checked by Worth Unlimited prior to starting in their role.
