We’re looking for Volunteer Mentors!

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

Our Volunteer Mentors support young refugees and asylum-seekers to overcome the challenges facing them when they arrive in the UK.

As a Mentor, you could support a young person to:

  • Practise English
  • Access local services
  • Learn about London
  • Access education
  • Study and gain employability skills
  • Receive practical and emotional support
  • Build confidence
  • Build social networks
  • Map future goals
  • Feel welcome and part of their community

We’re now recruiting new Volunteer Mentors who would be willing to meet with their mentee at a local cafe/library in London on a weekly basis for a minimum of six months.

We aim to establish a diverse pool of Mentors with different ages, cultural backgrounds, skills, and interests. If you’re passionate about mentoring and would like to support a young person to rebuild their life, then we would love to hear from you!

We will provide you with a comprehensive induction, 1:1 support from your Mentoring Coordinator, expenses, additional social events for you and your mentee, and you will also have the opportunity to attend our quarterly training workshops.

If you would like to become a Volunteer Mentor, please read the ROLE DESCRIPTION and complete our MENTOR APPLICATION FORM.
