LDN Calling for Emergency Arts Mentor🚨
Arts Emergency has just opened mentor applications for 2024.
For all the basics on the Arts Emergency mentoring programme you can check out our cheatsheet here.
If you would like to apply to be a 2024 mentor simply register here by 30th September.
Every Arts Emergency mentor has the unique opportunity to directly contribute to a fairer future where ALL young people, no matter their background, can find their way into creative careers. Mentors are trained, supported, and cheered on by a team of passionate people dedicated to making sure they get the most out of their time as a volunteer. They’ll get to meet a curious, committed, and excited young person (aged 16-18) just starting out on their journey – who’ll be so grateful to have a more experienced friend by their side. And, last but not least, mentors develop a skill set and gain a set of experiences that will help you grow both personally and professionally. There’s really no downside!
The mentor programme runs each year from January – December and they ask mentors to commit to meeting their mentee once a month for at least 1 hour, either online or in-person.
A quick reminder that LDN has a bank holiday on Monday!
