To train volunteer mentors so that they are ready to

experiencing social difficulties at school.

What is a mentor?

A mentor is someone who is able to give support

and a regular time commitment to help a young

person to develop their confidence, self-esteem and

social skills so that they feel more integrated in the

social life of the school.
