We are now recruiting for our next mentor training programme. Our dedicated team of volunteer youth mentors play a key role within our social programmes. Our work with young people is motivated by a passionate belief in the benefits of the outdoors and nature for young people, coupled with our delivery of excellent youth working skills. Over the years we have worked with a wide range of young people with challenging needs and they have often experienced traumatic pasts.

To join the team you will need to be able to provide regular one to one mentoring sessions,  attend the relevant training course provided by us, need a DBS clearance check (provided by WF), enjoy outdoor activities, have the ability to maintain your composure under pressure and have a good sense of humour!

We are particularly keen to supplement our team with new mentors from the Clacton and Southend areas, however we are always pleased to hear from volunteers across the county.

If you feel you would like the opportunity to make a positive difference to a youths life, please email info@wildernessfoundation.org.uk
