The Kids Network are a London based organisation working in boroughs across the city to help support children aged 8-11 through one-to-one mentoring.
At a crucial age in a child’s development, mentors help with their social and emotional development during the transitional period between primary and secondary school.
Mentors help build confidence, resilience and curiosity for ambitious futures through a series of fun and positive activities and experiences, opening up London in accessible and interesting ways.
Outside of sessions, mentors are able to connect with one another through peer to peer support both online and in regular mentor meet ups. Mentors also receive full training and ongoing support.
As a mentor, you will hold weekly one to one sessions of 1-3 hours with your mentee. These sessions take place out of school hours during the week or at weekends.
Our sessions are child-led and you will discuss potential activities with your mentee so that they can choose how you spend your time together. Help your mentee to improve their confidence, resilience and social and emotional development by setting goals and being a positive role model.
Attend our monthly workshops to further develop your skills and connect with other mentors.
