Trailblazers Mentoring Ltd are looking for volunteer mentors to support our work in reducing reoffending by providing one-to-one mentoring for young offenders.

Could you change a life? Mentor recruitment now open.

Trailblazers Mentoring are delighted to announce that we’re recruiting for a new intake of volunteer mentors to join our team this Autumn across all of our projects.

Founded in 1998, Trailblazers provide ‘through the gate’ support to young offenders who wish to turn their lives around. We match our volunteer mentors on a one-to-one basis with a mentee who is due for release within the next six months. Through weekly mentoring sessions inside the prison, our mentors help guide our mentees through a programme of bespoke support to prepare them to return to the community. Once released, you will continue to support your mentee in engaging with probation, applying for benefits, and finding housing, training and job opportunities.

“Do it and get involved. You can really make a difference to an individual and help them change their life completely.”

We are proud to say that our mentees have a reoffending rate of just 9% compared to the national average of 56% - but behind every success story is an individual, supportive relationship that helps our mentees rebuild relationships with friends and family, improve their employment prospects, and inspire new futures.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and we will be happy to assist you with your enquiries.

Applications must be submitted by 25th September 2022.
