Become a mentor

As a Chance UK mentor you will be a role model for a child, help them make positive changes in their behaviour and have loads of fun.


You will be matched with a child and meet them once a week, for 2-4 hours, for one year. Our children are aged between 5-11 years old.

You will have a dedicated Programme Manager who you will meet once a month for supervision. They will support and guide you through the mentoring year. You will have a £30 budget per month for session expenses (eg. arts & craft materials or entrance fees) and you can claim back your travel expenses too.

All mentors receive comprehensive mentor training, work within a structured and proven programme, and are managed and supported throughout the mentoring year.

“He needed a role model, now he is a role model himself… It is the most rewarding thing I have ever done”
