ReachOut partners with schools in disadvantaged communities to support young people aged 9 to 16 referred to them for one of the following reasons: low academic attainment, low confidence, behaviour issues, or because teachers believe they would benefit from the support of a role model.. Young people meet weekly with their ReachOut mentor at after-school projects that take place in a classroom in their partner schools in term time. They focus on attainment, character, confidence and aspiration – all personalised to the young person through a volunteer mentor, and supported by team activities and workplace experiences.
You can apply to become a mentor whenever throughout the year. Fill out the application form online.
Requirements: Register on their website, complete a DBS check and give them the details of two referees. Join other first-time mentors at their fun and informative training, thereby joining the ReachOut Team.
