We are pleased to announce that due to the success of our pilot Ys Girls project, the project is now able to reopen for both volunteer mentors, and mentees to apply.
Feedback so far has been phenomenal and we are so proud of everyone involved.
Nationally we have matched 229 mentees with mentors and have trained 255 mentors.
Mentors and mentees meet weekly to start, gradually reducing, for the period of up to one year.
They participate in activities out and about in the local community and the project aims to improve self-esteem and confidence and empower our young women of the future.
"Thank you for EVERYTHING this year, I am so happy to be involved in the programme it's been so rewarding, moving, enjoyable, and is teaching me so much already. You do such an incredible job I feel very lucky to have a small part in the enormous amount of impact you have on young people's lives." - Volunteer Mentor
