Mentors needed!

We are currently recruiting for mentors for our Career Pathway programme. 

The Career Pathway programme is designed to reduce many of the barriers young people face on their journey into work. By providing mentoring opportunities, we hope to enable disadvantaged young people to make informed decisions about their careers, set goals and develop their interpersonal skills.

We run two separate mentoring schemes that cater for different age groups:

  1. The schools scheme is run in partnership with three schools in South East London. Mentors will be matched one-on-one with a student in Year 10 (aged 14-15) and a key focus for mentors will be helping their mentee to find a work experience placement.
  2. The graduate scheme matches mentors one-on-one with a young person (aged 18 – 30), initiated via a speed mentoring session. A key focus is for mentors to support mentees to find volunteering placements and permanent employment.

  • Satisfaction in helping someone mature, progress, and achieve goals.
  • Achieve personal growth and learn more about yourself.
  • Engage in a volunteering opportunity, valued by employers.
