Arts Emergency

Sign up for mentor training

We are preparing to welcome a new cohort of 200 young people from across London, Manchester and Thanet to our mentoring programme in January 2020 and we would love for you to join us as a mentor! Arts Emergency mentors work voluntarily with a young person over the course of a year, meeting monthly to set goals, explore higher education, creative projects and careers.

If you haven’t mentored with Arts Emergency before you will need to attend one of the training sessions below.

Our training covers working with young people, what you can expect as an Arts Emergency mentor and safeguarding.

Note: You only need to attend ONE of these sessions to become a mentor. Currently we are only seeking mentors living in London, Manchester and Thanet but we have plans to expand to more locations across the UK soon.
