A small York-based charity, The Island provides mentoring services for York children between the ages of 8 and 18 who are experiencing difficulties with their mental, emotional and/or social wellbeing.
With high success levels of transforming the lives of local children and young people, The Island carefully selects, trains and supervises volunteer mentors who commit to meeting their mentee regularly over a 12-month period. The volunteer mentors give their time freely and work one on one with their vulnerable mentee to build their confidence, self-esteem and resilience levels.
Many of the children who are referred to The Island live chaotic lives, witness domestic violence, abuse substance misuse and growing up in poverty and neglect. The Island's mentoring schemes provide a sense of normality and stability so that they can find a way to move forward onto a more happier and healthier path in life.
