Eikon mentors

Forming a positive relationship with young people


Mentoring is a simple but effective way for an individual to provide support to a young person who may be going through a challenging time or struggling to make important decisions. Volunteer mentors can support young people in the following ways:

  • Listen without judgement
  • Help to work out what changes a young person wants to make in their lives and discuss ways to achieve these goals
  • Encouragement and help to challenge themselves
  • Regular support

Eikon mentors come from a range of backgrounds and have all sorts of experience and interests. Every single mentor goes through a process of interview, DBS checks and training before they start mentoring young people.
