Little Green Pig is a local creative writing and mentoring charity, helping the children and young people of Brighton and Hove to get creative with words. We are currently looking for volunteer Story Mentors to help in our workshops. Volunteers must be enthusiastic and reliable, have an interest in working with children and a passion for literacy and storytelling. As we are working with words, we ask volunteers to speak good English and be comfortable supporting children with their language skills. We are always looking for people who are interested in volunteering with us - especially people from a wide variety of backgrounds to best represent the diverse groups of children we work with. In return for their time, we offer volunteers full training in mentoring and child protection and we have lots of opportunities to socialise and find out about work experience.

Skills

Patience, enthusiasm, reliability and professionalism, a desire to work with children and young people.

Benefits

Chance to explore creativity, learn mentoring techniques, meet like-minded people

Practical Considerations

We work across the city in a variety of different venues. If travel costs are a barrier to participation, we can offer reimbursement.
