Inspiring Young Enfield Mentor
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Inspiring Young Enfield Mentor (X4) in the Youth Development Service. The Youth Development Service focuses on providing early help to young people aged 11-19(up to 25) for SEND or care leaver) within the context of whole family support.
Enfield’s commitment is to provide access to a dedicated mentor to young people who are most in need of support and who face the biggest challenges to reaching their potential. This includes children who have been excluded from school or college, those who are impacted by exploitation and domestic violence or living in poverty, and those involved in the care system.
The role will collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders to ensure mentoring programme is well embedded and integrated within the overall Enfield mentoring services provided to young people, enhancing the existing mentoring support in place. The role will work very closely with the Youth Development Service team, supporting the overall local youth offer.
