Peer mentoring at Off Centre
Off Centre runs a popular Peer Mentoring programme. We recognise that the best people to look out for other young people and offer them guidance are, you guessed it... young people. For this reason we recruit, train and develop Hackney young people who want to give something back to the community in the form of mentoring support.
If you feel you'd benefit from a mentor, someone to support you with your needs, or perhaps would like to mentor someone yourself please get in touch
Mentoring is tailored to each person, with the aim of supporting you to reach your own personal goals. Support can range from supporting you into work, writing a CV or just getting out and about seeing different parts of London and having fun.
We support mentors through a rigorous training programme and ongoing support. In addition mentors can attend a monthly Mentor Mentee Support Group where members can meet, catch up, hang out, eat food and plan group activities. Our recent adventures have included Thorpe Park, Go Ape!, sports day, the Science Museum, yoga, kick-boxing, climbing, sailing, cooking and watching a fireworks display.
