- Improve your business’s brand in the local community.
- Provide your staff with new skills including social skills, work-readiness skills as well as improve their motivation.
- Improve teamwork, leadership skills and enhance empathy in your organisation’s workplace.
- Create sustainable social action that changes lives and results in the prevention of street homelessness in our communities.
Who can be a Volunteer Mentor that supports people in transition to independence?
- Any mentor we’ve trained that would love to practise their new skills! We just ask them to be over 21!
- Anyone that is open to new experiences and able to reflect on their own experiences, offer empathy, guidance, practical ideas and support.
What do YOP Volunteer Mentors do?
- After the two-day training (including enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service – police check) and short interview), Volunteer Mentors are matched with a person YOP knows (mentee) and safe arrangements are made to meet.
- Volunteer Mentors and mentees each sign a Code of Conduct and we facilitate the match.
- After the training we ask our trained Volunteer Mentors to meet their mentee for just an hour a week and have an informal chat over a coffee. And we’re at the end of the phone at all times.
- Volunteer Mentors offer someone to talk to about everyday things; from how to change a light bulb to longer-term plans, such as finding work. Some relationships may develop informally over a coffee and others can be a structured conversation around housing, managing money or finding work.
- Others may be more action-focused and involve researching where to find CV help or setting and sticking to a financial budget. Mentees tell us that being ‘nudged’ by a Volunteer Mentor is helpful and empowering.
