Details

Organisation profile

The Change Grow Live mission is to help people change the direction of their lives, grow as individuals, and live life to its full potential.  The vision we're working towards is to develop, deliver and share a whole person approach that changes society. 

 

The role will involve

Change Grow Live’s Achieving Change through Employment (ACE) programme is looking for volunteers to work in a mentoring role supporting adult ethnic minority and migrant communities helping them to achieve their employment-related goals and improve their English skills.

             

Skills required

Volunteers are matched to the service users according to their skills and interests.  The volunteer will work with the individual, to build a goal-focused mentoring relationship.  Volunteers will need to have the ability and motivation to support individuals into employment, training or volunteering.

 

What you will gain

Giving as little as an hour or two a week in this role can have a great impact on someone's life.  In return you will gain valuable experience, skills and a real sense of achievement as well as ongoing training, supervision and support.

 

Additional information

Currently, volunteers and service users meet over an internet platform such as Zoom, MS teams and as we emerge from the pandemic, the Change Grow Live office in Cardiff can be used to meet participants.  Volunteers and participants are matched according to skills, abilities and interests.

ACE is funded by the European Social Fund through the European Government.  Volunteers would be reimbursed for expenses such as travel to meet the Service User in a central public location like a library or a coffee shop.

 

Closing date:  This project is an ongoing one and has no fixed start date.  The end date is August 2021.
