You’ll be trained to lead a mentoring project that takes place weekly during term time in the afternoon or evening. Placements are based on Project Leader availability and location preference but does also depend on the needs of our partner schools. You will use your experience and creativity to plan and deliver both academic and fun character-focused activities. A typical session would be a mix of icebreakers, group games and activities focusing on ReachOut’s character strengths – Fairness, Good Judgement, Self-control and Staying Power - and one-to-one mentoring where each young person is paired with a volunteer and works on Maths and English. During this time, you will support mentors to build relationships, carry out the activities and ensure the smooth running of the session. The project will end with a group activity such as sports, drama, or arts and crafts where the young people can develop their character strengths and further build relationships with the mentors and each other.
