What will I be doing?

  • The Kids Network is looking for committed, fun and passionate volunteers who live or work in the Camden borough, to make a difference to the local children in the community. Our structured mentoring programme supports 8-11 year old's, based in Camden, to support children with their social and emotional development before they transition into secondary school.
  • As a mentor, you will hold weekly one on one sessions of 1 -3 hours. You will help to build confidence, resilience and help your mentee to manage feelings through a series of fun and positive experiences and activities.
  • The weekly sessions can be flexible between weekdays and weekends.
  • You will also get to meet fellow mentors through our peer network!
