What is the role

  • The Kids Network is looking for committed, fun and passionate volunteers who live in or near to Islington to make a difference to the children of London.
  • Our structured mentoring programme supports 8-11 year olds with their social and emotional development before they transition into secondary school.

  • You will also get to meet fellow adults in your community through our peer network.
  • All volunteers will benefit from our two-day training where you'll gain skills and knowledge to support you as a mentor. (Many mentors share that the skills developed support their progression in the workplace, especially those seeking to gain experience working with children and young people)

What impact will this have?

Expenses

Training
