Description

Become a ReachOut Volunteer and change a young person's life.

Mentoring charity, ReachOut, run a series of projects across London working with primary aged students (aged 9-11 years) helping them with their school work but also to build character and confidence, and to raise their career aspirations.

ReachOut needs volunteers to give just 2 hours a week to become mentors where you’ll work together on academic school work and character exercises for the first hour followed by a further hour of fun group activities such as sports, arts and crafts or baking.

Mentoring with ReachOut allows you to make a difference, take on a new challenge and give back to the community!

A one-off, fun, face to face training session is provided to all volunteers so you feel prepared and confident ahead of starting your project. You’ll be supported by your project leader and the ReachOut team throughout your journey with us.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
