What is the Y’s Girls mentoring programme?
The Y’s Girls mentoring programme matches trained volunteer mentors with young women aged 9-14 years old to support them to be their best.
Over a 12 month period, the mentors and young people meet regularly and work together to identify achievable goals that will empower the mentee and build their resilience to enable them to lead fulfilling lives. The sessions offer an informal environment with the opportunity to discuss anything that might be worrying them, from family and personal relationships to lifestyle and education.
Y’s Girls is an early and effective mentoring initiative that will adapt and replicate the successful Plusone Mentoring programme model, designed by YMCA Scotland, across the UK. Mentors are trained and supervised by their local YMCAs.
