Due to an increase in Enterprise activity, the Princes Trust has an urgent need for volunteers to support its young people. The Princes Trust is the UK’s leading youth charity. It supports thousands of young people every year into education, employment, training and volunteering.

The Trust delivers is its Enterprise Programme which helps unemployed young people between 18 and 30 years into self employment. In South Yorkshire there is an urgent need to recruit more volunteer Business Mentors. Business Mentors support young entrepreneurs on a one to one basis for up to two years. They act as a sounding board for young people and help them develop and grow their business over the longer term.

To be a Business Mentor for The Trust involves patience, tenacity and an ability to work with a variety of young people. Mentors need to be willing to meet their young entrepreneur monthly and have occasional contact by email or phone. Typically, the Trust is looking for volunteers who can commit to 5 or 6 hours each month. The recruitment process involves completion of an application form followed by an interview and training.

In return, the Trust can offer a great opportunity to individuals who want to make a real difference to young people’s lives. Mentoring for the Trust offers people the chance to develop themselves as individuals, build their confidence and give something back to their communities.
