Ypeople intandem mentoring service
intandem is a national community-based mentoring programme which supports young people aged 8-14 years. In Glasgow, we provide weekly mentoring for young people who are living away from home in a Children’s House or with kinship carers in a formal arrangement, as well as young people who are looked after at home. All the young people we support are coping with a wide range of complex challenges.
intandem is designed to offer young people opportunities to have fun, learn new skills and access their local communities within a safe environment. It will help young people set and achieve their goals.
Adult volunteers, from all backgrounds and experiences,
are recruited, trained and supported by Y People. intandem volunteer mentors are chosen for their qualities of commitment, reliability and
stability. The mentor and the young person will spend
around 2 hours a week engaging in various fun activities. The arrangements are flexible, and the pair will usually choose activities together.
Young people referred to intandem are visited at home by our coordinator to share more information. We also check that both the young person and the family are happy about having a mentor as intandem is completely voluntary. To help identify the most suitable volunteer mentor, our coordinator will also try and get a picture of any interests, likes and dislikes and any wishes or needs.
