Grandmentors

Grandmentors is an award winning project that harnesses the energy, skills and life experience of older volunteers (aged 50+) to support young care leavers (aged 16 -24). Volunteer 'Grandmentors' are introduced to a young person in their local area, and arrange to meet regularly, usually for an hour or so per week or fortnight. Their meetings aim to build a positive relationship, improving the young person's self confidence, and increasing their ability to gain or remain in education, employment or training. Being a Grandmentor is a very flexible, rewarding volunteer role, proven to make a difference to young people. Bringing youth and experience together really does change lives! No previous experience is necessary – our mentors come from a range of backgrounds, some are retired or semi-retired, many are in full or part-time employment. Training and expenses are provided, and local support includes opportunities to meet and share experiences with other mentors.
