Male Mentor

We are an award winning national mentoring charity setting up in Portsmouth. our work involves mentoring young men aged 18-25, either in or in danger of becoming involved in the criminal justice system.

We need mature men to mentor young men aged 18-25yrs who are either in the criminal justice system or in danger of becoming involved. We also work with care leavers and other vulnerable young men, usually on a referral basis. You will be required to do a residential primary training weekend (5pm Friday to 3pm Sunday), with another weekends mentor training. There are also regular weekly meetings in Hilsea on Tuesday evenings. These are offered at no cost. All we require is your commitment to mentor a young man.


We have men from all walks of life take up the challenge. However a key requirement is an ability to listen, and to be open minded about the world and the diversity of the men in it. We are a community building organisation, that seeks to support young men by giving them a healthy community to belong to. There are a variety of skills needed in our operations as well as the mentoring, for which you will receive in depth training and support.
