Are you a BAME student? Could you mentor a local young person?

Do you identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic group (BAME) and do you want to support a BAME young person in the local area?

We have teamed up with two local secondary schools where BAME University students will meet up with BAME school students once a week for 5 weeks. On week 6, the young people will be invited onto campus to see what University is like. You will be a mentor – a positive role model for a school student and provide  support and encouragement to them.

Full training in how to be a mentor and transport to the school is provided. The sessions will take place on Wednesday afternoons from 1:00 pm – 4:00pm.

To participate in this programme you will need to identify as BAME and have a current DBS check (completed within the last 3 years).

You will need to be free on ALL of the following Wednesday afternoons;

13th and 27th  February

6th, 13th, 20th and 27th March

This is an excellent opportunity to volunteer and develop your communication skills and confidence. Last year 65 students engaged in this opportunity and all said they would recommend it to other students.

If you are interested and can commit to this opportunity, please email Beth Thomas-Hancock as soon as possible on: bt11@brighton.ac.uk
