Volunteers are trained to mentor young people under the age of 18.
Mentors will be paired with a young person in a secondary school, sixth form or college and will work on a one to one basis for a minimum period of six months.
They will meet the young person at least one hour a week and during this hour may cover a variety of issues depending on the young person they are paired with.
