Volunteer mentors support young people from disadvantaged areas of Coventry to achieve their academic, social and future goals.
Established in 2002, IntoUniversity works to raise the aspirations and attainment of young people in socially disadvantaged areas. We have 32 centres and extension projects across England, that provide Academic Support, primary and secondary school workshops, university application support and mentoring for young people. Our Coventry Centre, opened in 2018, in partnership with the University of Warwick and already has made a massive difference to the lives of hundreds of young people.
We have an exclusive opportunity for University of Warwick students to act as mentors in supporting our young people to achieve their academic, social and future goals. You will meet at least once every two weeks for 1-15.hrs based on you and your mentee’s shared availability.
Acting as a role model, you will support their learning, increase their knowledge of university and boost their confidence. Providing 1:1 support you will see the young person develop over the year, evidencing your contribution to their future success.
Mentors will gain skills in leadership, communication and problem solving while making a real difference to the life chances of their mentee. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in working in education or who would like to gain experience working with young people
