Caitlin is our Mentoring Project Manager. Coast Mentoring is a collaborative project between CYC Trust + Youth in Transition. Our youth mentoring programme is for young people between the ages of 10-24 years. We have a team of volunteer mentors who are matched with a young person and journey alongside them for the period of 12 months. Over this time the mentor meets with their young person for 1-2 hours every week, the focus of this time is on building a caring and trusting relationship. Our mentors help to support, encourage and equip our young people to step into a brighter future. If you would like to become a mentor or make a young person referral then please contact
