About the volunteer job
Mentoring is about supporting a young person in gaining greater faith in themselves and their own strengths and future possibilities. The young people from psychiatry who need a mentor often do poorly at school, have few resources at home or lack positive role models. Therefore, you can often make a huge difference simply by being a stable supporter who listens and takes an interest in the young person.
You can do this in many ways, for example through good talks, walks, by doing homework or going to cool leisure activities together. There are many options, and you don't have to do the same thing every time. The most important thing is that you focus on the young person's wishes and that you want to make yourself available to help another person on the right path in life.
As a mentor, you basically meet with the young person 2-4 times a month in and around Esbjerg, Vejle and Aabenraa. The length of the mentoring course is basically one year. In order to achieve a safe and stable relationship, we would like you to commit for as long as possible - preferably for a year - but shorter periods are also possible.
