Volunteer Mentors Needed in Dublin City and North Dublin

Your Time, Your Support, Your Kindness has the ability to change lives!

Le Chéile Mentoring provides a one-to-one mentoring service for young people who are at risk of offending and their parents. We receive referrals from the Probation Service, An Garda Síochána and other local organisations. By becoming a Volunteer Mentor with Le Chéile, you have an opportunity to empower young people who have been referred to us, who are either involved in or are at risk of offending.

The role offers a first-hand opportunity to make a real impact in the lives of vulnerable young people by being a positive role model and providing support.

Who we’re looking for?

We are looking to recruit Volunteer Mentors from the North Dublin area with a passion to make a difference in their community and a commitment to being a positive and reliable role-model for each young person. The young people and parents referred to us come from all walks of life, so we’re looking for people that can make a connection and build a positive mentoring relationship. You don’t need a specialist background or any previous experience, as we will provide training, all we ask is for volunteer mentors to be above the age of 21.

What’s involved?

Once you’re fully trained, you’ll be matched with a young person or parent and mentoring sessions will take place once a week for between one and three hours. Our volunteering is flexible, meaning you can meet during the day, evenings or weekends. These sessions aim to provide support and encouragement through doing activities together like going to the cinema, playing pool, or just meeting for a bite to eat and a chat. Le Chéile covers all costs; all you give is your time.

What support do we offer?

Before becoming a fully-fledged Mentor, we offer a full training programme designed to ensure that you feel confident and ready before being matched. You will also have the support of a trained coordinator who will be able to offer advice and guidance whenever needed and regular group sessions with other Mentors to learn from their experiences and discuss different challenges. Optional ongoing training is also provided in specialist areas throughout the year.

What will you get out of it?

As a volunteer mentor, you have an opportunity to encourage positive change in the life of a young person or parent and to witness first-hand the impact that you can have. Additionally, you can also expect the following:

  • Full mentor induction training.
  • Support of a trained Mentoring Co-ordinator.
  • Regular group sessions with other Mentors.
  • Optional ongoing training to learn new skills.
  • Travel and activity expenses.
  • Meet new people and make new friends.
  • Gain experience that will support your personal and professional development.

Recruitment Process.

Our recruitment process includes an application form, interview, reference checks and Garda vetting.
