Could you or someone you know be a Peer Mentor?
Peer Mentoring is a great way to to gain experience and knowledge while supporting another young person in Hull with their emotional health. Being a volunteer is a great way to gain work experience while in education, and gives you lots of opportunity to move into other projects and even jobs in the future.
The project has been running in secondary school across Hull for over 5 years and has a brilliant staff team supporting it.
Mentoring sessions could be anything from having a chat, to supporting someone with bullying, self-esteem, transition to secondary school, emotional health and healthy relationships or any number of other subjects.
Mentoring is currently offered over Zoom or Teams and you will be supported every week by a member of the Peer mentoring team to make sure you've got everything you need for you and the mentee to be safe and happy with the support.
To be a mentor you need to be in school or college in years 9 to 13; Live or go to school/college in Hull; and be able to volunteer for about 30 minutes a week to support another young person.
Training is delivered in 2 sessions, with various dates and times on Saturdays, and your availability will be discussed with you by the team to find the dates that work for you.
