Would you like to help a young person in your local community? You’ve come to the right place!
ReachOut are looking for volunteers to join us for 2 hours a week as a mentor to young people in need of a positive role model. ReachOut partners with schools in under-resourced communities across London to support young people aged 9 to 19, helping them to grow in social and academic confidence, develop their character and raise their aspirations so they can thrive in life!
Our mentors are at the heart of ReachOut projects, they are positive role models working with young people on both an individual and group basis and they make a real difference to the young people ReachOut works with.
You will be involved in one of our weekly after-school ReachOut Projects, working with either primary or secondary school students. Our sessions are fun and engaging, involving both group activities and one-to-one discussions. The high quality, intensive programmes we deliver go far beyond academic tutoring, as we believe that building character and self-confidence is key in helping young people to thrive. As a mentor you will be paired with a young person, who you will work with each week over the course of the school year, helping them to develop their character, exceed their goals and grow in confidence. You will also take part group activities that promote leadership, trust and responsibility.
You will volunteer once a week (term-time only) as a mentor to a young person. You’ll meet up at one of our projects for two hours of activities as part of a large group of mentors and mentees.
These sessions combine group activities with one-to-one time where you and your mentee can work on goal setting. While no two sessions look the same, in an average ReachOut project you will work individually with your mentee, play games with the group and encourage young people to work on developing their character! ReachOut sessions are fun, engaging and make a real difference to the lives of young people!
You will be involved in our weekly after-school projects for primary or secondary school students, every session is fun, engaging and makes a real difference to the young people. Our sessions combine group activities and one-to-one discussions, and as a mentor you will work with the same young person every week helping them to develop their character, exceed their goals and grow in confidence.
