Description

The IntoUniversity Mentoring Scheme pairs university student mentors with young people aged 10-17 from some of London’s most disadvantaged areas, giving them the opportunity to receive tailored, one-to-one support in areas including academic attainment, social skills and future planning.

As a mentor you will help to ensure that the background young people are born into doesn’t affect their life chances.

What does being a Mentor involve?

- Working one-to-one with an IntoUniversity student for one hour at least twice a month.
- Meeting with your Mentee for at least five sessions.
- Planning your mentoring sessions in advance, with the support of IntoUniversity staff. Activities might range from helping your Mentee with their homework or working on their public speaking, to baking a cake together or taking part in a group trip to a university.
- Attending a mentoring graduation event with your Mentee at the end of the year.

What can you expect from us?

- Full training in advance of beginning your role, and ongoing support and training opportunities from IntoUniversity staff.
- Flexibility in your volunteering around exams and holidays.
- The chance to develop valuable new skills, including communication and leadership, and gain experience for your CV.
- Recognition through the IntoUniversity accreditation scheme.
