Intandem, Scotland’s mentoring programme for young people brings together vulnerable young people with a mentor to build a consistent and trusting relationship, and improve their chances in life. The Scottish Government has appointed Inspiring Scotland to lead the development of the intandem programme.
Initially the programme will focus on providing mentoring for children and young people aged 8 – 14 years who are looked after at home. Intandem recognises a young person’s need to have at least one long term relationship with a positive adult role-model. The disruption looked after children face can make this difficult to achieve within a family setting.
Y Sort It is a Company Limited by guarantee, run by an elected board of directors who are young people aged between 16 and 25. Y Sort It provides a range of youth activities, groups and support services for young people throughout West Dunbartonshire on both a centre-based and outreach basis. We ensure young people are able to make informed choices relevant to their lives, and have support in doing so.

As intandem volunteer coordinator you will be responsible for recruitment, support and the motivation of volunteer mentors and overall service coordination. You’ll play a key role in changing young people’s lives for the better.
The focus in every mentoring relationship will be on developing the child, recognising and building their strengths, and providing support and encouragement to deal with difficult and challenging situations in their lives.
