Youth Offending Team Mentor

Southwark Youth Offending Service is in need of Mentors to support young offenders and our community.

We need men and women aged 21 & above from all ethnicities and social backgrounds - we are, however, particularly keen to recruit male volunteers!

We want people who live or work in the borough of Southwark, who are good at listening and who are reliable.

What do mentors do?
