We are looking for Volunteer Mentors!

Would you like to make a difference in the life of a young person seeking safety in the UK?

Hope for the Young’s Mentors help young people overcome the challenges facing them upon arriving in the UK, including difficulties with their education, a lack of social support, language barriers, mental health difficulties, and the long period of uncertainty while they are waiting for their immigration status to be decided.

We are now recruiting new Volunteer Mentors, who would be willing to meet their mentee at a local cafe/library in North or South London on a weekly basis for a minimum of six months. We aim to establish a pool of Mentors with different ages, cultural backgrounds, skills and interests. If you are passionate about mentoring and would like to support a young person to rebuild their life, then we would love to hear from you!

Corinne and Mohsen, a mentor and mentee, sit together at a table in a cafe. They are both smiling.

We will provide you with an induction, training and expenses, and you will have the opportunity to attend our quarterly Training Workshops. Check out what our workshops look like here.

If you would like to become a Volunteer Mentor, please read the Role Description and Person Specification below and complete our Mentor Enquiry Form.
