Mentoring at Leytonstone Youth Café

Mentoring is part of Waltham Forest's Gangs Prevention Programme and runs activities such as: 

  • Train volunteers as school mentors with school placements and supervision
  • Provide additional training to suitable mentors to specialise working with young people at risk of violent extremism. 


1. Recruit 20 adults from the local community to train as mentors. At least 6 of these should be from the Muslim community.

2. Provide placements to all mentors in schools

3. Provide further placements for mentors with appropriate skills to work with more hard to reach and vulnerable young people through the YOS and any further partnerships which are established during this grant.

For more information please get on touch with us using the below details.
