Mentors will receive training and support throughout their 12 month commitment and will receive a great feeling of satisfaction as they see the impact their consistent support has on a young person who desperately needs it.
This one-to-one relationship is often the first positive relationship the young person will have with an adult.
Primarily you will be a friend. Once that has been established you will offer guidance and support on how to live a sustainable, fulfilled life away from peer pressure, drugs and crime – what many of the young people in the TIL programme face when they leave care.
