Here at EPIC we are keen to support young people in many ways and in all aspects of their lives, mentoring is the provision of personal support, guidance, encouragement and inspiration to young people as they transition into adulthood. We work with young people aged 10 – 17 and have a wonderful team of volunteers who give up their spare time to work alongside us as a mentor.
Our mentors see their mentee on a one to one, monthly basis and provide a friendly ear to listen and support with many challenges of growing up from relationship, school and family issues and careers advice.
Our mentors work with young people to develop their character, raise aspirations and improve their academic attainment through a positive mentoring relationship to help them achieve their potential and go on to lead good, happy and successful lives, our ethos at EPIC is all about Encouraging Potential and Inspiring change.
With a mentor by their side our young people flourish and have the opportunity to experience and explore many opportunities and new experiences and meet new people.
We all love to come together for group activities and have had lots of fun doing so along the way! We have enjoyed many activities including crazy golf, bowling, spooky Halloween walks, Zorb football, archery and much more!
