Location We are looking for volunteers to mentor children living in Islington, Westminster and Lambeth. The Chance UK office is based in Finsbury Park, Islington.
Description

We are looking for positive people who are prepared to commit 2 hours once a week for one year. As a Chance UK mentor, you'll make a real difference to a child dealing with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

As well as giving something back to the community, volunteering as a mentor with us is a great opportunity to gain some fantastic experience working one-to-one with a child with challenging behaviour.

Each child is carefully paired with a mentor, and the two meet weekly for a year, for fun outings and problem-free time. During sessions, the mentor helps the child develop the confidence and personal and social skills which will help them deal with difficulties and build a brighter future. We provide full training and support throughout the mentoring process and the skills you will develop as a mentor are invaluable.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Planning/Organising

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

All volunteers will need to complete three days of training. Training takes place on a Saturday at our Finsbury Park office from 10am til 4pm.
