Mark De’Lisser

Professional Mentor

Responsibilities: To support young people to thrive by providing one to one mentoring, role modelling and the opportunity to build resilience

Previous Experience: After graduating from Bath Spa Uni, I spent a number of years bouncing around retail and hospitality jobs. However, I always knew that I wanted to work with children and young people in some capacity.

I have been lucky enough to be employed by some incredible organisation in Bath, namely the Black Families Education Support Group where I worked as the Supplementary School Coordinator, and then at the Bath Area Play Project as a Community Play Support Worker. In both of these roles I was able to work with a diverse range of children and young people both one to one and in groups.

Likes Mentoring Plus because: the needs of young people are at the core of everything that we do.

Good at: Listening, making people smile, writing poems and handstands

Not so good at: Maths and early mornings
