Volunteer Autism Mentor Training Starts This Autumn

/, Learning Disability/Volunteer Autism Mentor Training Starts This Autumn

Next month, the Leeds Autism AIM service will have new training sessions for anyone who would like to become a volunteer mentor with the service.

Mentors are matched with an autistic adult and meet once a week or once a fortnight to help them set goals and identify obstacles, with an aim to overcome them.

The training starts on Thursday 10th October and spans three sessions.

It is free to attend and open to anyone who lives within reasonable commuting distance of Leeds.

To book on the training course or find out more about the role, email Owen Walker, Deputy Manager/Volunteer Coordinator at Owen.Walker@advonet.org.uk – calling the Advonet office on 0113 244 0606 and asking for Owen.

If you are an autistic person looking for a mentor, please note that our mentoring waiting list is currently closed until further notice due to high demand.
