Detailed description
PROMISEworks is a Somerset charity which recruits, trains, matches and supports local volunteer mentors, each of whom then builds a close, long-term relationship with a disadvantaged youngster. Long-term mentoring makes a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged young people in many ways: Mentoring can improve a young person’s self-esteem, widen their horizons and raise their aspirations It can help them learn to control their anger; prevent them from getting into dangerous situations and stop them from causing harm or damage to themselves or people and things around them If only for a short time each week, it can give them the opportunity just to be children – to enjoy a picnic, jump in the surf or critique the current fashion trends without worrying about what else is going on in their often chaotic young lives Our mentors talk of how hugely rewarding it is on a personal level to volunteer their time in this way. We do ask that you seriously consider your ability to commit to a relationship lasting at least 2 years.
