The
Power of an Hour

How does our Online Mentoring Service work?

Our online mentoring programme is designed to help you build your future step by step. Above all, we aim to inspire and equip you with self-worth, confidence and the necessary knowledge and skills needed to navigate your way through many career opportunities.

You’ll start out by meeting someone from the LVN team. They’ll listen to your needs and give you advice. You’ll figure out your next steps together. You may only need one session, you may need more.

In one session, you could discover an interest in a certain career or job type, in the next, you could meet people who’ve already made it there and learn what skills and experience you need to get a foot in the door. After that, you could meet a volunteer who can share those skills with you and help you work on your CV.

There are many opportunities out there, and we’re here to help you access them.

The volunteers you can meet

We work with you to help you identify your interests and areas for development. You can ask for very specific help CV or interview preparation, or simply explore your options.

There are already hundreds of volunteers signed up to support you. These include personal trainers, musicians, lawyers, programmers, entrepreneurs, self-employed IT professionals, builders, teachers, nurses and more.

They can answer your questions, share their career journey, advise you on how to enter their industry, and sometimes even offer work experience or internships.

Our support is deliberately youth-led. This means that you’re in control of your journey. You can request specific support and receive as many hours as you need.

How to I access the session?

You’ll receive your invite through our App. 

Local Village Network Accessing the Power of an Hour

Receiving your hour

Relax, have fun and don’t worry! You are there to meet mentors who are eager to help you. We know that meeting people outside your usual network can have a big impact on your life. Every hour really does help and you can have as many as you want.

You will never be left alone with a volunteer. No personal information should be exchanged between yourself and a volunteer and all contact must be via LVN (this includes email, phone numbers and social media information). You can read more on our Safeguarding Policy page to understand what we’re doing to keep you safe.

After the hour

Once the session ends, there are two main things that need to be done: letting us know your thoughts on the session, and telling us what you want to do next.

We’ll record your attendance and you’ll automatically receive access to your session review in the app. This is a couple of quick questions and lets you keep a record of your progress. This is a useful resource to reference in interviews and helps us understand what support you’d like next.

After a session, you can continue attend more to learn more about different industries and how to become more employable. If you’ve figured out what career you’d like to pursue or know your next steps, you can request to meet someone from that specific industry.

Our mentoring programme is what you make of it, and you’re in charge of steering your journey with us.
