The Suffolk Youth Offending Service mentoring project is looking for volunteer mentors to work with young people on a one to one basis, mainly assisting them to access a constructive leisure activity, and supporting them to maintain this. In turn this will help in building up the self-esteem and self-confidence of the young person.

Full training and ongoing training is provided, as well as regular support meetings. Mentors need to be over the age of 18 and have access to transport. Mentors will be required to meet with a young person weekly, for up to 2 hours a week. We also ask that mentors commit to volunteering with Suffolk Youth Offending Service for a minimum of 12 months.
