Community-based mentoring is designed to help young people develop a greater sense of belonging and self-worth. Many young people participating in community-based mentoring are seeking positive adult role models in their lives outside of their existing support structures. By providing this level of support young people have the ability to identify their aspirations whilst establishing enduring connections with others.
Our community-based mentoring program offers stability and consistency for young people in need of support through one-to-one mentoring. Each young person is matched to the most suitable mentor based on personality, shared interests and geographic location. Once a week, the mentor will meet with the young person to spend time together, such as outdoor activities (ie. bike rides, sporting events) though to cooking, exhibitions, doing craft and other specific hobbies to help build a strong mentoring relationship.
