About the Role

Creative Mentoring is an emerging mentoring programme from AIMCommunity providing young

photography, music and more. The young person can receive short intervention type mentoring

or longer term ongoing mentoring for between 1 hour and 12 hours per week.

The role of Creative Mentoring Programme Manager is not only to oversee the day to day
