Mentoring Programme

Mentoring Programme

We run an innovative Peer Mentoring Scheme which provides young people aged 16 to 25 with opportunities to train and work as volunteer mentors at CYP, taking on responsibility, developing professional skills and becoming positive role models for the younger members of CYP. Young people receive a tailor-made training package to aid their personal and professional development, supported by London Youth, Access to Sport and Leap. This has a positive impact for both young people and the wider community. Our mentoring programme is unique because it allows young people to remain members but also take on roles of responsibility during their mentoring hours. It trains young people to understand and learn how to behave appropriately and differently according to our roles and the environment.
