About The Girls’ Network:
The Girls’ Network is an award-winning national charity, working with nearly 1000 girls across the country.
We work with 14-19 year old girls from the least advantaged communities by matching them 1:1 with a professional female mentor for a year, and a network of professional female contacts for life. We aim to open up opportunities, build skills and confidence and unleash their potential for a successful future.
What does mentoring involve?
Mentoring involves at least ten hour-long 1:1 sessions with a teenage girl, over one academic year. There is a programme specification with many resources to support you, but we also encourage you to make your sessions bespoke to your mentee in order to help her reach her potential for a successful future.

You must have an enhanced DBS certificate with child workforce checks within the last two years to mentor. If you indicate in the application form that you do not have a current DBS, we will contact you with instructions on how to apply. There will be a one off processing fee of £10.
