Youth Mentoring is available to girls aged 8-18 .
Girls are matched with a mentor with whom they have a one-to-one session each week, for at least 1 year. Mentoring can take place remotely and/or face-to-face at the centre.
Mentors act as role models, providing a positive environment where young people feel safe and encouraged. They help girls develop their own motivation and improve their confidence and self-esteem, as well as provide academic support. Together with their mentors, girls set different personal goals related to their personal development, character and academic achievement.
Mentoring is informed by Baytree’s Character Development Programme, which provides a framework that informs mentors’ planning of their one-to-one sessions.
Mentoring sessions are scheduled according to the mentor’s and mentee’s availabilities and are held Monday to Thursday between 4.00 pm and 6.00 pm and Saturdays between 10.00 am and 12.30 pm.
If you would like to make a referral, please fill out our referral form and send it, along with the mentoring application form, filled out by the girl, to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 733 5283.
