Mentoring Plus runs a variety of after school activities for young people and their mentors to attend together. A new programme is scheduled at the start of each term and we always try to run a good balance of sports, arts, practical and social activities. The current activities programme can be viewed on the calendar or you can download the latest edition of the activities diary for more details.
There are plenty of other activities you and your mentor can get involved with in and around the B&NES area. Please see our list below for some ideas and if you have any suggestions that are not featured here, please email them to us at email@example.com
It is surprising what can appeal to young people! The National Trust have agreed to let you and your mentee in for free (please contact us if you are planning a trip and we can send you confirmation that you are with Mentoring Plus). The Abbey at Lacock is where they filmed Harry Potter! What about Dryham Park?
