Volunteer Mentor

Details Hide[-]

Become a ReachOut Volunteer and change a young person's life.

Mentoring charity, ReachOut, run a series of projects across Greater Manchester working with primary and secondary aged students (aged 9-16 years) helping them with their school work but also to build character and confidence, and to raise their career aspirations.

ReachOut needs volunteers to give a maximum of just 2 hours a week to become mentors where you’ll work together on academic school work and character exercises for the first hour then depending on your project it may be followed by a further hour of fun group activities such as sports, arts and crafts or baking . Mentoring with ReachOut allows you to make a difference, take on a new challenge and give back to the community!

A one-off, fun, face to face training session is provided to all volunteers so you feel prepared and confident ahead of starting your project. You’ll be supported by your project leader and the ReachOut team throughout your journey with us.

Projects run for 20 or 30 weeks from October to March or July and all we ask is that you can spare 1 or 2 hours a week and are committed, enthusiastic and positive.

If you’d like to join the ReachOut team, visit our website: https://www.reachoutuk.org/sign-up-to-mentor, fill in the form and we’ll be in touch with the next steps of completing a DBS check and references, and letting you choose your project!

Reasonable travel costs will be reimbursed.
