IntoUniversity is an award-winning education charity which provides local learning centres where students from underrepresented backgrounds are inspired to achieve. Young people from the UK’s poorest backgrounds tend to do less well at school and are far less likely to go to university. IntoUniversity provides long-term academic support, motivation and encouragement to give young people a fair chance of realising their full potential.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please complete an online volunteer application form at www.intouniversity.org/apply. You will then be invited to register your attendance at an upcoming training session.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with the team on firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you soon!

What is the Mentoring Scheme?
The IntoUniversity Mentoring Scheme works with young people from some of the UK’s most disadvantaged areas, supporting them to raise their aspirations and achieve their potential. By volunteering with us, you would help to ensure that the background young people are born into doesn’t affect their life chances. As a mentor, you would be paired up with a young person aged 10 to 17 years old who you would meet once a fortnight at one of the two Bristol centres and focus on a mixture of academic, social and future-focused activities. There will also be the opportunity to go on trips, attend group mentoring events, and take part in Mentoring Graduation in the summer. This scheme provides an opportunity to have a significant impact on a young person's life while gaining valuable volunteering experience at the same time.
