Invest in Youth is one of the Building Better Opportunities projects in Lancashire.

This post is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund as part of the Building Better Opportunities (BBO) programme for Lancashire. 

The Mentor’s primary purpose will be to re-engage young people into education, employment or training by providing an intensive one to one support. To recruit and manage a caseload of individuals who are unemployed or economically inactive. 

We are looking for candidates who are understanding, respectful and able to relate to young people, yet have the ability to challenge and set boundaries in a clear and non-judgemental way.
