Do you have time to spare to help a young person or adult?  Can you offer encouragement, inspiration and support?  We are looking for volunteers for a range of exciting projects.

Volunteering for Adviza will offer you an interesting and rewarding opportunity to help people reach their full potential, whilst receiving full support and training. See below for our current volunteering opportunities:

Lucky Break Mentors

We need volunteers to use their experience of life and work to support young people and adults through a variety of mentoring programmes across the Thames Valley.

As a mentor you can make a huge difference to a person’s life chances by helping them break down barriers to achievement, build confidence and resilience, and develop vital employability and life skills.

Mentoring is a life-changing experience for you too, giving you a sense of purpose and achievement that comes from giving back to your community whilst enhancing your own well-being, experience and skills.

All our mentors receive training and support from our experienced mentoring co-ordinators.

“Being a mentor is really rewarding and fun. The mentor and mentee grow in confidence.” Ansaa Khatoon,  Lucky Break Mentor

“I use my experience to help people with the next steps they want to take in their lives.”
Mike Dick, Lucky Break Mentor

Become a life-changer. Volunteer as a mentor for one of our Lucky Break programmes.
