BECOMING A MENTOR

It is often easy to overlook the privileges that we’ve had throughout our education whether it be the mentors that inspired us, the extra-curriculars we’ve participated in or the teachers or tutors we’ve had that have been on hand to help us when things got tough.


Giving back to our community in this way can be hugely rewarding on a personal level, but also for those seeking to develop professionally by showing that they can hold down a position of responsibility and work within a team, MentorJr can count towards your volunteer work for CAS, DofE, and many other UK and US schemes that require a volunteering element. It will help you to diversify your own experiences of education, so that when it comes time to write personal statements or apply for posts, you can draw on this amazing experience and discuss what it meant to you.

 
 

BECOME A MENTOR!

Thank you for taking the time to sign up! If you have any questions, you are more than welcome to email at jessie@mentorjr.com and we can arrange your post as a mentor that way too.

COMMITMENT & SUPPORT

  • 45 minutes each week​ at any time that suits you

  • Ideally for at least two terms of the school year

We will provide all the information and support materials to help you structure your mentoring, but do remember that kids may just want an older student to hear them out so this post is as much educational as it is pastoral. I will of course always be available at jessie@mentorjr.com to help answer any questions to guide and support you if you need!

 

ROLE AS A MENTOR

Mentors are typically in Y11, Y12 or Y13. You will be paired up with an individual student who you may work with as a one off, or on a more regular basis to help provide homework support and mentoring. The mentoring sessions will last 45 minutes - 1 hour. The ethos of this programme is believing in inspiring children not just to learn, but to be confident in themselves and passionate about what they do.

 

TESTIMONIALS

From our Mentors

"Being a mentor has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in any volunteering setting that I’ve been involved with. The two things that stood out for me were firstly how quickly you bond and form a genuine connection with your mentees and secondly the fact that you can see real development in a short time so it feels like you are adding value to someone’s life and making a real difference."
