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.
