Once children graduate from the holiday camps at the end of Year 7, we find it very hard to say goodbye. So we have developed a Mentoring Programme that means we can stay in touch with them through secondary school.
We have a wonderful team of volunteer mentors; after appropriate training and safeguarding each one is paired with one of our lovely children with the aim of helping them develop self-esteem, social skills, perseverance and resilience. The Mentoring Programme aims to improve attitude and behaviour and increase attendance at school thereby raising aspirations and opportunities.
As you would expect, we do this in typical KoT fashion – events, workshops and activities will all have a serious focus, but the overriding element is FUN.
No professional experience is necessary to become a mentor, just the desire to help and enough time to invest in a relationship that could last for up to four years. We will provide all training and ongoing support.
If you’d like to find out more about the Mentoring Programme, please contact us via email or complete the application form and one of the team will be in touch.
