Could You Help Someone to Volunteer?
'Introduction to Mentoring' Session - 30th April 2014 (1.00pm - 4.00pm)
The Volunteer Centre is looking for volunteers to act as mentors. We support all sorts of people to start volunteering and some of them need a little bit of extra help to settle in to a new volunteer role.
Volunteer Mentors need to be available for a couple of hours each week for up to 3 months. This could be during the day, in the evening or at the weekend. Each mentor role is different; we aim to match up mentors and mentees with similar interests and availability.
If you are interested inf dining out more come along to our 'Introduction to Mentoring' session on 30th April 2014. This is an opportunity to find out more about the mentor role and whether you feel it is suitable for you.
