Get Connected Volunteering Opportunities
Get Connected is a peer mentoring project matching young people together for structured activities based in Maidstone, Dartford, and Gravesham. The project is designed to support confidence building, increased personal/social skills and opportunities for young people to connect to their community.
We are currently recruiting mentors (aged 16-19) to accompany mentees to an activity of their choosing for (up to) 20 weeks to help them get settled in and encourage them to become more confidently independent. Training will be provided.
