Grand Mentors

If you’re 16-25 years old you might like to have a Grand mentor. Grand mentors are 50+ year old volunteers with Volunteering Matters, who offer their wisdom and life experiences to help you get to where you want to be. 

They offer weekly check ins and can help with (for example) advice, motivation, socialising, reaching goals.

Sounds like a good idea? Get in touch, details on the website: Grandmentors – Volunteer (Suffolk) – Volunteering Matters
