Celebrating Youth Mentoring Week

Today kicks off Australian Youth Mentoring week, a celebration of youth mentoring and all its success, potential and opportunity. This week provides us all with a valuable opportunity to:

  • celebrate the positive impact of mentoring on young people
  • recognise and celebrate the contribution of mentors
  • raise the profile and promote the benefits of mentoring
  • recruit more mentors
  • seek support for mentoring through mentor recruitment and partnerships within communities and including business.

Not-for-profit organisation Whitelion runs a variety of mentoring programs for youth who have been or are at risk of becoming involved in the youth justice and out-of-home care systems.

To find out more about Whitelion’s programs and/or enquire about becoming a mentor, visit Whitelion’s website.
