When can I volunteer?
Ypeople are looking for volunteers for our intandem mentoring project which supports care experienced children & young people aged 8-14 living in Glasgow and North Lanarkshire.
Funded through the Scottish Government and delivered through Inspiring Scotland across several charities, the programme aims to match children and young people with volunteer mentors who will help build positive, secure and trusting relationships with their young person.
“As a mentor I’ve learned so much. I thought being a mentor was about being this cool person to look up to, but it’s so much simpler. It’s not turning up and looking cool – it’s just turning up. Being supportive and consistent is so much more important than fun and flash.”
