THIS MONTH:

URGENT CALL FOR MALE MENTORS

Many of our young people live in single-parent homes and do not have a positive male role model in their lives. We have a great need for male mentors within our Mentoring Programme and are actively recruiting caring, enthusiastic men who are committed to our work and to working with our young people.

If you or someone you know would like to become a positive male role model in the life of a young person through mentoring, please contact the Mentoring Team at mentoring@kidsco.org.uk or on 020-7202-2700.

READ MORE

Our mentors build a one-to-one relationship with one of our young people, committing to meeting them once a week for at least a year. Mentors must be CRB checked, and go through Kids Company's interview and training process to ensure they are well matched with a young person. The bonds created through mentoring enable our young people to achieve goals, build confidence, and to simply have fun. The consistency and reliability our mentors provide has a positive and profound impact upon our young people.
