Edventure is run by and for people in Frome.

Can you volunteer your skills, resources and network to support our students to set up community enterprises and initiatives that tackle local challenges? For example, people contribute anything from an hour to a day to coach students, work with them to create a website or brand, show them around their business, lend them a trailer, help them with business planning or learn more about the challenges and resources available in Frome.

How to get involved

  1. Come to one of our monthly meet-ups for an informal introduction 
  2. Join an Edventure Soup event to hear about upcoming projects, what input is needed and pledge your support.
  3. Meet the students during their first week at an evening event.
  4. Work with our students to teach practical skills, run a workshop, support our tutors or to mentor students 1 on 1.    
  5. Join the final project celebration.

We are here to help you develop your ideas.

What it is

A  one-to-one mentoring session in which an Edventure team member explores what support you need, connecting you with useful people in our network, and offering you free or discounted workspace to develop your ideas or grow your business

How it works

We meet with you in person or online, in order to understand what support you need to make your ideas happen and match you with appropriate resources and sources of funding and advice.

Who its for

Young adults 18-35 based in Frome, Somerset or neighbouring villages – people who have ideas for a project or start-up, or who want to take the next step with their business or social enterprise.

What people said

Some practicalities

Call or text us on 07548014066 or email [email protected]. We will set up an initial chat to explore your ideas and either match you with an Edventure coach or mentor, or signpost you to other resources and sources of support.

There is no financial cost to you as its funded by the Natwest Skills & Opportunities fund. The support we offer is flexible, ranging from a one-off informal chat to six months of regular coaching or mentoring.

A big thanks to the Natwest Skills & Opportunties fund that is enabling us to offer this.
