Be A Mentor


Mentoring is equally important to Esteem’s vision.

 

“As a mentor I help young people believe in themselves and progress in life.” – Mel, mentor

If you have valuable life experience, why not volunteer as a mentor to pass it onto a new generation!

 

Offering guidance to our young volunteers, Mentors devote their time and experience.

 

Supported by an Esteem Project Worker and trained by Esteem’s UK Manager, Mentors will be required to invest 2-8 hours per week to work with up to 4 young people per person.

 

Mentor Me is a one-year project offering 75 young people 1:1 Vocational Mentoring opportunities of those aged 14-26 in the South East Coast areas for 1 hour per week for approximately 2-6 months per person (this is just a baseline as some will need more and others less).

Mentor Me invites up to 30 skilled and experienced members of the community who have a little time and energy to invest in the local younger generation; helping them to discover what they want to do with their lives, how to gain the confidence to achieve it and identifying career and personal development goals.

This intergenerational project can have a positive effect on the well-being and inclusion of people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, for both the mentee and mentor alike. By matching young people with a mentor who has relevant life or career experience, both can feel empowered and inspired by this mutually beneficial arrangement.
