Positive Placements Mentors

YMCA DownsLink Group’s Positive Placements project is looking for volunteers who could mentor young people preparing to enter the world of work.

To become a mentor you will need to be non-judgmental, confident and empathetic with an ability to listen and relate to young people. You will have to be able to get the best out of people by offering support and advice.

In return YMCA DLG will offer Training and ongoing support. You will be required to have a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check that will be paid for by the charity.
