Volunteer Mentors Need At Our Shed
Volunteer mentors are need at our shed, we not only mentor our men and offer to help prevention of depression by way of activities and having a morning cuppa together. We are also getting involved with looking for volunteer mentors for our external activities. Some of our members are also involved in Mentors For Our Schools and we also attend the HYMC meeting every month. Don’t forget Yakka Day with Mentors For Our Schools, remember 17th October 2014.
Our aim is to involve high school students, in workshop activities and try to find business’s that will offer work experience for them. Volunteer mentor are not students parents or teachers, they are there so the students can bounce ideas off of the and to learn by example. Take a look at this video presented by Mentors For Our Schools.
We need more volunteer mentors for just one of the many things we do both in the workshop and our in the community. So come and join us for a great time being one of the volunteer mentors.
