Arts Emergency

Sign up for mentor training

Mento pairs meet at an introduction event

We are looking for volunteers based in London, Manchester or Merseyside who can mentor from January 2021. You’ll work voluntarily with a young person over the course of a year, meeting monthly to set goals, explore higher education, creative projects and careers.

If you haven’t mentored with Arts Emergency before you will need to attend one of the training sessions below. Training sessions this year will run on Zoom, they’ll last approximately 2 hours and we’ll share information digitally with you before and after.

During training, you’ll learn transferable skills about coaching, safeguarding and structuring mentoring sessions. Find out more about training and being a mentor on our Mentoring FAQ’s page.

If you have any questions or if there is anything we can do anything to make the training process more accessible for you please contact our team on


You only need to attend one of these training sessions. Currently we are only seeking mentors living in London, Manchester and Merseyside but we have plans to expand across the UK soon.

Our London mentor training spots and waiting lists are fully booked.
