A CHARITY organising outdoor activities for vulnerable young people in Swindon is looking to recruit inspiring mentors.

The Youth Adventure Trust, which has its main office on Whitehill Way, runs its mentoring scheme alongside the main activities programme to be a role model to youngsters aged 11- 16 who need extra support on a one a one-to-one basis.

The charity's Youth Adventure Programme challenges young people through outdoor activities to help them build confidence and self-esteem.

Mentors only need to meet with the young person for around two hours a fortnight for up to a year, depending on the person, to help them meet their objectives alongside the main programme.

Although no previous experience is required the trust is looking for people who can be a role model to vulnerable people, should be responsible, resilient, and have a desire to help young people.

The trust was set up in 1992 by explorer Sir David Hempleman-Adams and Major Richard Mitchell , who are both known for breaking multiple records for exploring the globe and reaching the north pole.
