Brighter Futures

  • Supporting secondary school pupils in Edinburgh through supported volunteering opportunities, and mentoring relationships
  • Working closely with young people who have barriers or life challenges, preventing them from achieving their full potential

Our innovative supported volunteering and mentoring programmes are currently delivered in partnership with one secondary school in Edinburgh – St Thomas of Aquins R.C High School.

The programme supports targeted young people in S2 – S4 by facilitating access to volunteering experiences with a local charity partner. We also engage pupils with empowering and positive mentoring relationships, and tailored 1:1 support provided by our staff team.

We help young people broaden their horizons, build their confidence, enhance their aspirations, gain new skills and experiences, promote a sense of place, belonging and citizenship. Our programmes also support each school with their culture and ethos of volunteering.
