Mentoring Program

Mentoring program aims to mentor young adults to connect with the wider community.  Mentors aim to be supportive individuals who build relationships with young people by offering them guidance, support, and encouragement to help cultivate positive and healthy development – many of the same things you do. Mentors are not meant to replace parents, guardians, or teachers, or to play the role of disciplinarians or decision makers. Rather, they become part of a team of caring adults to that young person. Mentors help encourage positive choices, promote high self-esteem, support academic achievement and introduce new ideas. Here are some things a mentor might help a young person with:

  • Supporting a young person to identify goals and targets to work towards
  • Empowering them to make their own decisions about their development
