Stirling Council’s Mentoring Service for Young People supported by the Throughcare and Aftercare team aged 16-25 (includes 15 year olds if returning to Local Authority) is looking to support young people who have experienced care.
They recruit volunteer mentors who will
•Build a supportive relationship in an informal way with a young person to help them build in confidence and access new opportunities.
•Commit 2/2.5 hours a week to support a vulnerable young person
•Put the young person first
•Be non-judgemental and supportive in a fun and friendly way
Mentoring provides a young person (mentee) with a relationship with a reliable and trusting person who will put them first. This relationship will help the young person grow in confidence and through this access new opportunities and experiences. The Mentor Coordinator will work hard to match the mentee with the mentor ensuring a positive bond is built.
The mentor’s key role will be to a reliable support for the mentee. The mentor is not adopting the role as a parent or guardian but someone who is there to offer a friendly and helpful listening ear.
