Our next training course for volunteer mentors starts on Saturday 2nd March 2019 from 10:30am to 3:30pm. The first session covers autism awareness and will be delivered by two autistic adults.
The course will be split into three parts, with the other two sessions taking place on separate dates. Part two will be about the mentoring role itself and part three is an induction session. To become a volunteer mentor, you need to attend all three sessions first.
A volunteer autism mentor is paired with an autistic adult who lives in Leeds. They help them to identify life goals and overcome obstacles. The mentor meets with their mentoring match on a regular basis, usually once a fortnight, to set goals and work out strategies to achieve them.
