University Student mentoring


We are looking for Students from The University of Sussex to join our Mentoring scheme.
The IntoUniversity Mentoring scheme matches a young person aged 10-17 with a university student. The aim of the scheme is to inspire our students and to support their academic attainment, social skills and future planning through one-to-one support. The scheme has been awarded Approved Provider status by the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation.

What does being a Mentor involve?
- Meeting with your mentee for at least five hour-long sessions between October 2016 and March 2017. . The mentoring scheme has been designed to flexibly fit around the mentor's studies so in the exam period they are not expected to have meetings.  
- Activities might include helping with homework, cooking or taking part in a group trip to a university.
- Attending a graduation event with your mentee at the end of the year.
- The mentoring scheme is a really fantastic opportunity to have a long-term positive impact on one of our students.
- Off-site trips.

What can you expect from us?
- Full training in advance of beginning your role
- Ongoing support from IntoUniversity staff
- The opportunity to develop valuable new skills and experience
- Recognition through the IntoUniversity accreditation scheme
