Be there for young refugees

We connect young refugees who want to learn with volunteers who want to help.

We currently have educational mentoring hubs in North, South, West and East London, Oxford, Birmingham and the East of England (Cambridge and Peterborough). If you think we should set up a hub in your area, get in touch to help make it happen.

You don't have to be an expert. We provide comprehensive training and review sessions to make it as easy as possible.

Mentors meet their mentees once a week for an hour. They become important adults in their lives, acting as role models to them and helping to combat isolation and loneliness. That's why we ask for at least 6 months commitment.

Becoming an educational mentor is the most effective way to support the young refugees we work with.

'Getting to know my mentee has been an amazing experience for me.'

'As trust developed between us, I realised how much he had been through, and how many challenges there are in his life. And yet he's positive and forward-looking. It's really humbling.'

You'll be joining a large group of volunteers who are there for young refugees. That connection is priceless and more often than not, mentors learn a huge amount from their mentee.

We'll get back to you as soon as we possibly can. It can take some time to match you with a young person – everything needs to be right. Thank you for your patience.
