JUMP, Boston Lodge, Boston Road, Lowestoft
JUMP is a youth mentoring project set up for and run by young people in the Lowestoft area. JUMP is open to all people 13 - 25 years old who may benefit from the mentoring process. However, our project particularly aims to help vulnerable teenagers find a safe place to live, encourage them to learn the skills that will kick-start their career, and give them the motivation to move away from crime and anti-social behaviour. At JUMP, our job is not to judge. Our job is to listen, and to give advice and help wherever we can. JUMP's volunteers know what they're talking about. Between them, they've experienced bullying and teenage pregnancy; alcohol and drug misuse; family problems and low self-esteem, and now they're using their own experiences to help young people facing similar scenarios today. It's not easy, growing up. Before you've even had a chance to pack away your toys, you're exposed to a whole new world. Alcohol and drugs, sex and pregnancy, exams and jobs. The pressure's on, and sometimes it can just get too much. That's where JUMP's volunteers come in. They give up their free time, choosing to support young people by giving them guidance, encouragement, understanding and motivation. They don't do it for the money. They do it to make a difference.
