What We Do

One on One Mentoring

RUSH supports local high schools by placing a significant role model in a young person’s life. It is weekly one on one, out of school mentoring. The volunteer mentor supports the young person with social, emotional and in some cases academic support so that they can achieve their full potential. They are dedicated men and women aged over 18 years old from all walks of life. They are willing to build a relationship of trust and will encourage young people to achieve their personal best whilst providing support to negotiate life’s challenges.The RUSH model is based on a partnership between the schools, the student and their family and the community.
