The London Italian Language Meetup Group Message Board › BeatBullying Italy Mentoring Opportunity!
|A former member||
I am writing to you from of the International Children's Charity BeatBullying, and I would like to offer an exciting opportunity for you to use their skills and experience to mentor young people in Italy who are experiencing bullying, and to be involved in a personal level for a project we are launching in Greece, Spain, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, and the Czech Republic.
What Is BeatBullying?
For the past 10 years, BeatBullying has been working with children and young people across the UK to stop bullying. We help young people who experience bullying to support each other, and change the attitudes and behaviour of those who engage in bullying behaviour. We interact with these young people through our award winning, online mentoring platform, and classroom based training sessions.
We are delighted to have now received funding to be able to take our award winning antibullying programme internationally. One of the first countries we will be working in is Italy, where we will launch an Italian language version of our award-winning website www.beatbullying.org and work in conjunction with our Italian partners to host events to generate positive PR, spreading the word so that more young people are aware of the support they can get.
We are currently recruiting for adult (18+) 'Life Mentors', who are confident in Italian, that will provide mentoring support to young people who are experiencing Bullying, and offering advice in 1-to-1, text based, chat sessions through our website. Full training will be provided, and all the roles can be done online, mostly requiring a commitment of just 1 or 2 hours a week.
We are hoping that you will, as a group, be interested in finding out more about this role. If you think you will be able to help, or are interested in building a partnership with us, then I would be delighted to discuss this with you further. We are based in London so could either come and visit you, or can talk by phone if you'd prefer.
Thank you for your time,
The BB Group
