Volunteer Mentors Complete Training Course
On Thursday 23rd October our group of mentors completed their five week training course. It has been a brilliant journey and as we finalise the recruitment process in the coming weeks, the thought that we will soon be working directly with young people at risk of exclusion is an exciting one. The XL-Mentoring initiative is a project developed in London by charity XLP. They have brilliantly resourced us to deliver this project in Burton-on-Trent and the enthusiasm and excitement of our mentors in training has been a real blessing and encouragement. The project will pilot for a twelve month period, though we hope that it will become an embedded part of our programme and run long beyond that.
