Supporting young people in rural Suffolk is the focus of a careers mentoring programme, recently set up by the Woodbridge-based Seckford Foundation to run alongside their wellbeing mentoring programme. This careers mentoring focuses on skills and routes into the workplace whilst boosting the young person’s confidence when seeking employment.
Both programmes follow a tried and tested structure which includes plenty of resources and support for mentors together with a clear start and finish point for mentees so they can actually see how far they have progressed, what they have achieved and what their next step might be.
Could you listen?
Due to the success of the mentoring programmes, Seckford Foundation is now searching for further volunteer mentors to join the team. It is a mutually rewarding programme for both mentor and mentee, often with tangible results being quickly achieved. No previous mentoring experience is needed as training and development is ongoing. All that is needed is some life experience, a non-judgemental attitude, a good listening ear and a desire to make a positive difference to someone’s life.
Both mentoring programmes are funded jointly by the Seckford Foundation, The Prince’s Countryside Fund and Salvation Army, and they are available to young people aged 25 and under to access for free.
Could you be the difference a young person needs?
