Peer Mentor Scheme

Our Peer Mentor Scheme is aimed at everyone in Year 8 or above, if you are interested in the running of the centre and would like to play a part in the decision making and planning then this could be for you! Our Peer Mentors attend regular meetings and training and have the chance to complete the Norfolk Youth Award along the way. Peer Mentors are young people who want to develop their leadership and management skills that one step further. Some of the things they get involved in are:


  • Planning sessions and activities
  • Running activities
  • Sign in and out
  • Tuck shop
  • Fund raising
  • Event organisation
