Southwark Youth Justice Service (SYJS) provide a trauma informed, systemic approach to working with children and families of 10-17 year olds in Southwark, who have offended.

Supported by a multi-agency team of professionals and volunteers and governed by the courts and Youth Justice Board, SYJS provide tailored programmes and interventions for young people in the criminal justice system to support them through their statutory order or community intervention.

The role of Volunteer Mentors are primarily, to support young offenders taking part in their reparation activities in a community setting.

You will be working alongside the young people in a group setting (2 young people: 2 staff) on a given task, whilst facilitating restorative conversations and encouragement with participation. Mentors are also given the opportunity to work 1:1 with young people outside of the reparation activities, should this be of interest.
