How do children benefit from becoming a MiniMentor?

Children trained as MiniMentors will:

  • understand the importance of friendship and respect for everyone
  • build-up their self-confidence
  • learn how to help and support each other
  • develop and practice mentoring skills
  • learn about different kinds of bullying and how to recognise them
  • learn a number of ways to deal with bullying that they can tell other children about
  • understand how bullying behaviour can make different people feel
  • know when and how to pass information from others to an adult

MiniMentors are told that they are not required to problem-solve issues themselves but to pass these on to an appropriate adult. This may be a trusted adult in school or at home. Online, the MiniMentors are trained to refer any issues onto our Counsellors.
