Volleyball was one of the sports taster sessions with world class coaches at Bath Uni this year

Mentoring Plus is all about connecting people. That includes working with some great local organisations to offer activities most people don’t get chance to do.

Bath has lots of Olympic athletes and their trainers, plus plenty of other sporting clubs. You don’t need to be brilliant at sports to enjoy taster sessions with them – they just want to let you try the sport they love, and help you feel confident to try things for the first time.

We also have lots of local theatres, venues and performers offering the chance to try everything from street theatre to music recording. You might enjoy the technical side of staging a performance, or the opportunity to write with a poet, make an animated film or record with a musician.

Young people matched with mentors and on our waiting list are offered a range of free term-time and holiday activities. Subject to capacity, we also welcome referrals directly to our youth clubs and participation groups for young people interested in these opportunities – further details below.

School holiday activities are always memorable – including fun sports taster days, high-octane go-karting or quad biking, bushcraft in the forest or activity residentials. Young people are supported by lots of skilled adults to make friends, try new things, relax and have a good time.

Activities we offer

Depending on your age, you can get involved with a range of different activities.

They’re all organised for you, many led by skilled professionals who love introducing new people to the thing they love, and you don’t need to have done them before. If you have transport worries, let us know and we can try to help as well.

Evening and holiday activities

Small group activities for young people aged 11+ led by skilled leaders who build strong, supportive relationships with young people attending. There’s always a choice of things to do, including cooking, fun sports and crafts, plus sessions led by experts in things like photography and digital music.

We run regular school holiday sessions for ages 7+ accessing great venues and expert leaders, and holiday activities for older mentees such as sports taster sessions, music, go-karting and bushcraft.

All sessions are free and door to door transport can be arranged.

You’ll get regular updates of what’s coming up!

Youth clubs

We run open-access youth clubs for 11-19 year olds at Riverside Youth Hub on Wednesdays and Thursdays in termtime, 6.30 – 8.30pm.

There is an attendance fee of 50p but this can be waived in cases of financial difficulty.

Young people can turn up for any session, and will just need to complete a simple contact form with parental consent. To discuss making a referral or supported introduction to youth club, please email zoe.mcintyre@mentoringplus.net.
