Students aged 18+, Community members aged 18+
Once a fortnight
THIS PROJECT WILL OPEN IN SEPTEMBER
Discovery is a mentoring scheme designed to encourage young people aged 14-19 with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to develop their skills and access Higher Education.
Volunteers meet once a fortnight to support workshops which will cover all aspects of student life, including: accommodation; applying through UCAS; personal statements; societies, etc.
As a student mentor you will be expected to be friendly and enthusiastic, engaging the young people and sharing your own experiences as a student.
