What’s it all about?

Mentoring young people in after-school art clubs over 3 years. Creative activities provide a safe and positive environment for mentoring, and a platform for young and old to develop confidence and skills. We will train and support older volunteers to be mentors for vulnerable 10-13 year olds.

How can you get involved?

  • Could you take part in a pilot intergenerational art workshop at Tredegarville Primary School on Nov 15th and 23rd from 1-3pm?
  • Could you be part of a small team helping us to plan this project?
  • Could you be a mentor to a young person for 3 years?
