About the project




The Y’s mentoring programme matches trained volunteer mentors with young people aged 9-16 years old to support them to be their best.

Over a 12 month period, the mentors and young people meet regularly and work together to identify achievable goals that will empower the mentee and build their resilience to enable them to lead fulfilling lives. 


The sessions offer an informal environment with the opportunity to discuss anything that might be worrying them, from family and personal relationships to lifestyle and education.

We are currently recruiting new volunteer mentors. To apply please click here. For any questions about applications please contact
