City Lions Mentoring - become a mentor!

We are excited that you are interested in becoming a mentor with City Lions! 

By becoming a mentor with us you’ll get an opportunity to help shape a young person’s future by sharing insight and guidance to help them succeed.

Please complete the form below to express an interest in becoming a mentor. The information you give us will be used to match you with a suitable mentee. Our hope is to match as many young people as we can with relatable role models that can help them develop their own creativity, build confidence, and inspire their future career choices.

We will be prioritising matching those with similar interests, aspirations / areas of expertise. We hope to pair as many people with mentors as possible but in some cases, it won't be possible to do this. 

More information about mentoring can be found here or if you missed our information sessions you can find a copy of the slides here. However, please contact us if you have any questions - citylions@westminster.gov.uk.  

Sign up closes on 30th September 2023.



We'd love to know a bit more about you, understand why you would like to take part and what you'll bring to our mentoring programme. Your responses to these questions will also help us pair you with a mentee, so please do include as much about yourself and experiences as you can.
