WHAT WE PROVIDE
All of our young mentors are thoroughly screened, trained, and supported. A vulnerable police background check, professional reference check, and a comprehensive in-home evaluation are all part of the process. Mentors must complete our required Mentor Training. Mentors are also provided with continuous, 24/7 emergency support for the life of the mentoring relationship.
Our volunteer programme is free. The program is 100% hybrid.
Volunteer mentors between the ages of 17 and 24 are recruited by DiverseMinds. Our programme employs a peer-mentoring paradigm in which adolescents are paired with other youth, resulting in a more profound and transformative influence. Mentors are paired with neurodiverse female kids between the ages of six and sixteen.
Our mentors are usually university/college students or young professionals who wish to make a positive impact in their communities. They give back by offering direction, support, and a good influence and role model to a neurodiverse child.
Mentors must commit to supporting their mentee for a minimum of one year and offer an average of 3 hours per week. Matches can last longer than a year if both partners choose to be together.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Our capacity to match a kid with a volunteer mentor is determined by the child's individual requirements and level of difficulty, as well as the availability of a volunteer in the child's local community. As a result, we are unable to provide each candidate with a one-on-one mentor.
