YOU could be doing rewarding work as a volunteer mentor inside young offenders institutes and prisons like Sadie did for four years at London’s Feltham Young Offenders Institute and HMP Aylesbury, before setting up her own projects.
Whatever your age, background or life experience, there are millions of young men and women who fully deserve your support and a second chance. There is a desperate need for more people sacrificing an hour or two of free time per week to be a mentor to prisoners. Expect the work to be fascinating, challenging, sure, at times, but intensely rewarding and creatively inspiring. A true life-changing experience for both MENTOR and MENTEE!
