CyberMentors

CyberMentors is the first online peer mentoring support network site that has helped over 1.5 million young people. CyberMentors runs 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The site uses social networking technology with a therapeutic framework, meaning CyberMentors is a fun, accessible and very safe place for young people to reach out for support. We need your help to help hundreds of thousands of people affected by bullying and discrimination.

From the comfort of your own PC and at a time that suits you, you can help young people who are affected by bullying through mentoring, supporting and being available to chat to live on the internet. The site is fully supported by a team of qualified Counsellors, and moderated by sophisticated net moderation software.

We are looking to increase our army of Volunteers, with a specific focus on supporting young people who come to the site with concerns about their sexuality, or the sexuality of people close to them. The training focuses around stereotyping, media representation, homophobic bullying and practical mentoring scenarios, alongside discussions about what other issues come to the site for support
