Volunteer Mentor - Extern

Extern is a charity that provides services to support a range of vulnerable and marginalised people including children, young people, adults and families who have issues which are challenging and complex.

Extern recognises volunteers as a core part of our team, with a distinctive but complimentary role alongside our paid staff.

Extern provides a range of volunteer opportunities to people who want to give their time to support the groups the charity works with.

The volunteer mentor will be supporting young people from 8-21 years old who are from the looked-after and care population.

The volunteer mentor will meet up with a young person for 1hour/1 ½ hours per week. A volunteer mentor can help a young person by providing emotional support, advice & guidance and hold-holding to assist the young people to address their barriers to progression. A volunteer mentor will improve a young person’s quality of life by promoting their wellbeing, independence, healthy life choices and training and employability.

All volunteer mentors will receive comprehensive training such as:
• First Aid
• Child Protection Training
• Adult Safeguarding Training
• Lone working
• Boundaries
• Confidentiality

Volunteer mentors will have regular contact and supervision with a designated member of the Extern Mentoring Support Programme Team. Each volunteer mentor will have the chance to attend ongoing training, events and the opportunity to attain an OCN volunteer qualification.
