What is youth mentoring?

The process of youth mentoring support is to partner up a responsible adult that is experienced, professional and qualified with a young person that needs or wants support academically, socially or personally. 

Youth mentoring is an effective way to help develop young people’s confidence, life skills, motivation and self-esteem. Youth mentoring has been recognised for decades as a highly effective practice that positively engages young people. 

It’s key to youth mentoring support that both the young person (the mentee) and the mentor are not related. It is also important that the young person does not know their mentor before the process starts.   

Centre for Resolution believes a healthy, transparent and supportive relationship between the mentee and the mentor, is vital. It is most effective for the mentoring relationship to be over a long period of time, for the process to be most effective. 

One of the aims of our youth mentoring is to provide a role model that can support the young person, ultimately improving their well being.

About Centre for Resolution's youth mentoring

Centre for Resolution caters for the needs of individuals and specialise in working with disengaged, hard to reach young people.

Centre for Resolution works with those who are at risk of becoming 'NEET', on the verge of exclusion, disruptive, those with low attendance or those with low self-esteem/confidence. We acknowledge that some young people find it difficult to express themselves, feel heard or understood. We feel it’s important to provide mentors who have life experience and a non- judgmental approach, making it easier for younger people to build trust and rapport.

The outcome of the sessions would be to improve transferable skills such as communication, confidence and social interaction thus helping them to engage positively with the wider community.

All of our sessions are tailor made to suit each individual we work with.
