  • About the Volunteer Role
    Can you spare 2 or 3 hours a week to encourage, support and inspire young people to feel good about school? We are recruiting now for a short-term, dynamic project that aims to foster confidence and optimism in students who have been out of school due to Covid-19 restrictions and may have mixed feelings about going back. If you are a friendly, outgoing and caring person with a positive attitude towards education, (even if you experienced your fair share of ups and downs at school!), we’d love to hear from you. Recruitment, training and delivery will be online for the foreseeable future, to keep everyone safe. The commitment for this role is 6 months, after which you may decide to stay with us and pursue the youth mentor opportunity.
