Mentor Programme

North Yorkshire Sport have been running a successful mentoring programme for over two years. To increase our capacity and allow us to work more closely with clubs and organisations, we have recruited mentors from around the county with different specialist areas of expertise (such as business management, funding, HR, motivational speaking).

These mentors will be deployed into organisations targeting women and girls and disabilities as well as people who are inactive. We will continue to support our Satellite Clubs with Mentors.

Following the most recent Context Survey, we'll also be deploying mentors to support with the areas that they felt the needed most support with:

  • Marketing
  • Attracting and retaining the right participants
  • Attracting and retaining volunteers
  • Facilities
  • Funding

Watch our webinar on mentors!

As part of our series of 'a conversation with ...' we spoke to two mentors and a club that has been through the programme.

Hear from two settings where a mentor has made a massive impact to them.
