We are partnered with UPSIDE YOUTH MENTORING , (formerly Brothers In Arms) delivering their programme to the Rodney Community. We exist to support change in young people with adverse childhood experiences. We want to help them feel a little brighter and more loved than they did yesterday.
We work with young people aged 9-13 years old who have been referred to us from principals, counsellors, psychologists and social workers who believe a positive role model is what this young person needs to help navigate their current challenges.
Our volunteer mentors hail from a hugely diverse range of ages, cultures and backgrounds. From CEOs to students, to parachuters and retirees. If you’ve got two hours a week to spare for a year to change a young person’s life, we want to hear from you.
Engaging a young person in positive activities, provides an opportunity for the child to look up to someone – possibly for the first time – from whom they can gain essential skills to build self-esteem and a sense of belonging.
If you’re interested in becoming a mentor then please join our team of over 20 mentors in Rodney, and help to change a young person’s life this year.
