  • Are you looking to get more involved with Woodcraft Folk in your area?
  • Would you like to work with young people but don’t know where to start?
  • Does committing to a fixed amount of time and a single project sound interesting?
  • Why not become a mentor?



The mentoring programme was developed in order to help young people in the Woodcraft Folk who were keen to take on more responsibility or who were interested in trying new roles. The emphasis was on supporting young people interested in leadership. The programme recruited volunteer Mentors and matched them with a young person or a group of young people needing their support.
