  • You will be subject to references and an informal interview process.  
  • We will ask you to attend mentoring skills training
  • You should be able to commit to a 12 week volunteering period.  
  • You will need to complete monthly updates and expenses forms. 
  • You’ll be supported by regular phone calls/meetings with the Project Co-ordinator.
  • We’ll expect you to attend quarterly reviews and an evaluation meeting at the end of the relationship.
