Alexandra Bond

Primary Mentoring Practitioner – Volunteer Mentoring

Responsibilities: I am part of the primary volunteer mentoring team, supporting our 7-11 year olds on their mentoring journey. We working with the young people to realise their potential and match them with one of our incredible volunteer mentors. I work with the mentors, supporting their developing relationship with our young people making sure the experience is as positive and effective as possible!

Previous Experience: I have worked for a socially focussed business for the past 15 years supporting local authorities, charities and youth organisations with their data, safeguarding, activities and volunteer management. I am a volunteer champion, supporting organisations to harness the power of their volunteers and drive long term impact – I have always volunteered and currently volunteer for Mentoring Plus, the Royal Voluntary Service as an NHS volunteer responder and I am a volunteer Member of a Multi-Academy Trust.

Likes Mentoring Plus because: we are solution focussed – Mentoring Plus has a positive energy which spreads across the whole organisation and to our partners, schools, volunteers and creates a lasting legacy for our young people. The young people are at the core of everything we do and that is a huge motivator!

Good at: Listening and hearing… Multi-tasking and organising. Being a manager to my 4 children, walking the dog and doing as much yoga and wild swimming as I can.

Not so good at: Heights and being anywhere underground – with the exception of the Tube when required!
