What will I be doing?

  • Give back and become a volunteer mentor today! Become a positive role model for a young Southwark boy and make a difference in their life.
  • The Kids Network is looking for committed, fun and passionate male volunteers who live or work in Southwark, to make a difference to the children of London. Our structured mentoring programme supports children based in Southwark, to support them 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.
  • Connect with a community of mentors through peer to peer support.
  • Receive ongoing personal support from The Kids Network Team
