Our application process has two stages. The first stage is to complete the form below as an expression of interest, giving us an idea of why you want to be involved. We will then invite suitable candidates to an information event giving you a chance to hear more about us and what is involved in becoming a Citywise mentor. You will also have an opportunity to talk with staff and other mentors in an informal environment and let us get to know more about you. Finally we will assign successful candidates to projects and give you details of the training day. The city needs heroes – could you be one?
