Could you mentor a young Mensan?

We are looking to pilot a mentoring scheme whereby adult Mensans act as mentors to young or junior Mensans. The focus of the mentoring is likely to be coping with giftedness and being different from one’s peers, although individual mentoring pairs may choose to agree more specific areas of interest such as career paths.

To this end, we are running a training and selection workshop for potential mentors, to be held on 19th August in Milton Keynes. The workshop will be run in association with Potential Plus, who have a wealth of experience in this area.

If you are interested in mentoring younger members, please read the attached draft Mentoring Policy and complete the application form. Numbers are limited so a shortlisting process will be applied if necessary. If selected, you will need to attend the workshop and bring with you either proof of current DBS status, or the required documents for a DBS check to be undertaken if necessary. Further details will be supplied nearer the time.
