We need you! The Kids Network is looking for committed, fun and passionate volunteers to make a difference to a little Londoner.
Our structured mentoring programme is supporting 8-11 year olds at weekends with their social emotional development before they transition into secondary school.
Kick start 2018 by doing something meaningful. Get connected to your community and make a difference to a disadvantaged child’s life. You won’t regret it.
What will I do as a volunteer mentor?
As a mentor, you will hold weekly sessions of 2-3 hours with a child aged 8-11 in London.
You will be building confidence, supporting resilience and helping your matched child to manage feelings through a series of fun and positive experiences and activities.
At The Kids Network you will not be alone. We connect our volunteer Mentors to each other creating a peer to peer network, building role confidence and knowledge sharing. You will also receive on going support from The Kids Network team.
What will the sessions involve?
Sessions will be child led and will be as creative and varied as your imaginations! From the local park to London’s great museums, you as a volunteer will experience the capital in a new way, through the eyes of a child.
What do I need to commit to?
- A minimum of 6 consecutive weekends from February 2018
- Be available to volunteer once a weekend for a year minimum
- Attend our two-day training days on 13th & 20th January 2018 (Saturdays)
