This year we are celebrating National Mentoring Day for the first time in Tweeddale. Local schools are taking part in our Buddy Up Day and raising awareness of PYT and mentoring. Each school is asking their pupils to buddy up with someone who they do not normally play with, either in their own year or in a different year. Together they will complete tasks, do activities, write jingles and take part in drama to get to know eachother better and to build their confidence in making friends.
Each child has been asked to bring a donation for PYT and this is going to be a really fun way of raising our profile and the profile of mentoring locally.
