Volunteer with us


If you’ve ever thought about helping people and wondered “what can one person do?” – here’s an answer. Just by giving time and space to talk to a young person, you can make an enormous impact on them, their family, school, and community.

Volunteer with Sister2Sister

Our volunteers are at the core of what we do. We spend most of our time, and resources in helping our volunteers do what they do, and we truly value them.

Volunteers receive full training before they begin, and continued support throughout the volunteering year.

Once you have passed the selection process, and completed training you are matched with a young person for a year-long relationship.

We believe that every young person needs a mentor, and therefore we can never have enough volunteers in our team. We are always looking to meet and train more volunteers. We are looking for special people who have a passion for the development of young ethnic minority females.

If you have a passion for young people, only have positive intentions towards their well-being, development and progress and believe you would make a positive difference to their lives, please contact us to see if you can become a part of our team.

A word from our mentees

Themis

age 16

My name is Themis and I went to St Thomas More in Wolverhampton. I was really struggling at school, with my English core subject and just in general. Chantel really helped me by encouraging and motivating me.

    We worked on a timetable together and this helped me to get organised. She helped me to understand what I want out of life and how my GCSE can help with my goals. She also helped me a lot with my GCSEs, I was down to get a grade 3, but with Chantel’s support I ended up with a grade 6. She listened to what was bothering me, and she was caring and understanding. She helped me with lots of things and was always on the end of the phone if I needed here..

Tianna

(age 19)

Throughout my years in education I have been able to benefit from the guidance and advice that Dionne has given me in areas such as work experience and my choices regarding university.

    Mentorship is something that you don't realise you need until its offered to you as it's so helpful having someone who can help you make an informed decision, and show you that you can achieve anything you want as long as you work hard for it. Typically, mentorship is an experience that not many get to have due to financial factors being a hinderance, however for me Dionne was always a phone call away and easily accessible whenever I needed her. I feel that all young girls should be able to benefit from a mentor like Dionne because she's really helped me gain more clarity on what direction I want to go in the future.

Makeida

aged 16

Before I met Chantel I was struggling with my confidence at school, my attendance was low and my family were concerned I wasn't making progress, especially in English.

    Chantel was really easy to get along with and definitely cared about my education (which reassured me a lot), she would consistently help me gain perspective on life goals as well as subjects that I struggled with. My time spent with her was great and I would definitely recommend her ! She was helpful, supportive and passionate about helping me to be the best. She helped me focus on my dreams of becoming a make up artist and even helped me apply for work experience at Selfridges in Birmingham.

Leah Ahmed

age 15

From the first time we met, I felt as if I could open up to Chantel with everything and she's very supportive. If I didn't understand something, she would keep finding other ways to explain it so I understood.

    I 100% feel as though she cared about my education and well being through the whole time because she would always ask questions about my day' week. One of the first sessions we had was about careers/jobs and further education, I felt supported as she would always ask me what I want to do and give me loads of advice. I really think Chantel has helped me loads in the time I had her and want to keep on having her, she has pushed me so hard in the time and I have moved up 3 grades, Chantel has really changed me and my mindset. I also now love English and yeah she's helped me loads.I can't thank you enough xx.
