Charity seeks mentors

Children’s charity Mentor Link is recruiting volunteer mentors from Shropshire to provide one-to-one support to children and young people in schools. Mentor Link are keen to hear from people, including members of the business community, who would be interested in supporting a young person to achieve their full potential. Mentors are specially trained to listen to and support young people and aim to improve their self-esteem and engagement with learning.
As one Y9 girl wrote to her mentor, “I’m glad I met you as you have allowed me to be who I am today and without you who knows where I’d be right now.”
No previous experience of mentoring is needed – different life experiences and plenty of enthusiasm are all that’s required. If you’d like to view a short film about becoming a mentor, visit mentorlink.org.uk; for further details call 07875 438659, or email Karen.arnold@mentorlink.org.uk.
