IntoUniversity Mentor Roles

This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

At IntoUniversity, we believe that providing better education for all is the key to unlocking the potential in every young person, and the bedrock upon which we can improve society. We are on a mission to help widen access to higher education across the UK, and we need your help to keep us moving forward! Our mentoring scheme matches you with a young person, who you will meet with virtually for a one-hour session a month, helping them to explore their future and develop their social skills. Not only a great opportunity to build your CV, mentoring gives you the chance to inspire real change. In 2021, over 65% of our school leavers progressed to higher education, compared to 28% from similar backgrounds. Your role as a mentor is fundamental to that success, so now’s your chance to get involved and change a young person’s life!
