Become a Volunteer Mentor with St Giles in Wolverhampton to Help Reduce Violence in the Community

St Giles Midlands are on the lookout for volunteers aged 18+ in Wolverhampton to volunteer on our CIRV Project. CIRV stands for ‘Community Initiative to Reduce Violence’ and is a focused preventative programme which is active in Coventry and Wolverhampton. 

This project overall seeks to identify the young people most likely to be involved in violence and combines communicating the consequences of violence with support for developing positive routes away from it; including a particular focus on making positive decisions. 

Through CIRV, St Giles has supported over 130 young people aged 14+ in the last year.

What does a volunteer mentor do? 

The role of a volunteer mentor plays a vital role in supporting young people as they transition out of the programme; giving them space to feel listened to and helping provide motivation as they work towards their goals. 

Being a volunteer mentor with CIRV is a unique opportunity to have a real impact on the life of a young person, guiding them as they move forward with their life. 

Volunteers receive extensive training to help them develop in their role, including: 

  • A Level 2 mentoring qualification 
  • Safeguarding and boundaries training 
  • Digital skills to support them in their role 

Volunteers also benefit from the experience of working with other professionals and young people and are given comprehensive well-being options to ensure they feel confident as a mentor. 

Being a volunteer is a fantastic way to develop new skills, gain experience and have a meaningful impact on the Wolverhampton community. Come and join our team!
