UCL and mentoring charity Brightside are recruiting volunteers to act as student mentors for small groups of 12-14 and 16-18 year old students at UCL Academy, the school sponsored by UCL in Swiss Cottage, North London. Mentors are inspiring role models who support young people to raise their aspirations, grow in confidence, and develop key skills that will help them make confident and informed decisions about their future, and ultimately achieve their potential.

The programme will launch in January 2017 and will consist of 4 face-to-face meet-ups supplemented by online mentoring. All mentors must undergo an enhanced DBS check and attend a mentor training session.

Please note the project launches on 18th January and the training webinar will take place online, at 5:30pm on Monday 16th Jan. Please submit your application by midday on Monday 16th so receive training details!
