Mentoring. 1:1 matches across Bradford district

Do you have what it takes to help a young person build their confidence? Grandmentors Bradford - local volunteer mentors (aged 25+) to provide mentoring, guidance and skills development to a young person who is out of employment, education or training .

Volunteering Matters Grandmentors Bradford is unique to our traditional Grandmentors projects. Volunteers (aged 25+) will be matched to a young person who is out of employment, education or training to provide mentoring, guidance and skills development. Volunteers will be trained to mentor young people aged 16-24 years old who need a guiding hand and role model ultimately giving them the skills and self-belief to lead successful and independent lives.

Volunteers meet (remotely during Covid but face to face when restrictions are lifted) with a young person each week to boost their confidence and work towards goals, which are unique to each young person. Volunteers support where they can to help these young people find their feet and reach their full potential. All volunteers are given full support and training throughout their time on the project.

The project will be coordinated by a local Volunteer Manager who will recruit, train and match mentors with young people focusing on need of support.

The project has been funded by Bradford Council and will be delivered in partnership with a range of local organisations such as the Bradford Youth Service, the Youth Offending Team, Connexions Bradford and local colleges and employers.


VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS Aged 25+ Good people and communication skills, patience and the ability to be empathetic. Willing to commit to either a shorter placement of around 6 weeks, or longer placements, up to around 6 months. Ideally a resident in Bradford District
