Mentoring young people age 11–25 who are at risk of/involved in exploitation, crime and youth violence

What is Aware Mentoring?

Aware Mentoring supports young people aged 11-25 who are at risk of/involved in exploitation, crime and youth violence. We do this through carefully matching a young person to a mentor who acts as a trusted adult and positive role model. Our aim is to see a change in direction of the young person’s future, empowering them to take ownership over their own journey.

What does mentoring involve?

Mentoring is a combination of 1-2-1 sessions and actives. The sessions focus on positive decision making, building confidence, identifying and building upon skills and strengths. Whilst the activities (including rock climbing, football, art and craft, video production) are designed to grow self-belief, teamwork and positively impact the young person’s well being. .

Where and When?

Aware Mentoring sessions primarily take place in public locations such as cafes. However, mentoring also takes place at our centrally based mentoring hub for young people who may feel uncomfortable meeting in a public environment. – The activities take place on different sites depending on the activity.

All mentoring sessions usually take place weekly, at a time and day that is convenient for both the young person and their mentor.
