Move On Mentoring (Move On)

Move On
Ross Davidson

We match volunteer mentors to vulnerable young people to support them to achieve goals and reach their full potential.

Mentors and young people meet once a week, in the community for an hour or two, to work together as a pair towards a goal of the young person’s choice. Young people often choose recreation or leisure goals, such as learning to play guitar, boxing lessons or taking a cookery class, but the this is totally up to the young person themselves.
