intandem Mentors – Befriend a Child

Intandem recruits volunteers to provide a positive, trusted and fun role model for children and young people who are looked after at home  through the provision of a regular mentoring relationship.

You will meet weekly with your ‘mentee’ (a child or young person aged between 8-14 years) for at least a year where the mentee will experience quality 1:1 time with a consistent, caring and reliable adult.

Through being a good listener, an empathic individual with a non-judgemental attitude, a positive mentoring relationship can develop by doing activities that you both enjoy. Initially this will happen in our home setting, the Hubb, where you will work towards exploring the local community through enjoying different activities.  Meetings will take place on a weekly basis for a few hours at mutually convenient time to be decided between you and the young person you are matched with.

Excellent training and support is provided to all volunteers including a specifically designed training package , support and guidance from the Intandem Volunteer Coordinator.
