Activity ideas

Activities that a young person and their mentor can do together are a fun and often productive way of building on the relationship. We are keen to promote local leisure and educational facilities as much as possible.

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.

There are plenty of other activities mentors and mentees can get involved with together 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
