Seeking volunteer mentors for Youth Frontiers Mentoring Program

Are you interested in sharing your skills and experiences with young people as a volunteer mentor or do you know someone who is?

From 2018, the Youth Frontiers program will offer mentoring to young people aged 12-16 years throughout NSW. Each participant receives a minimum of 35 hours of mentoring.

The program will give young people an opportunity to build life skills and self-confidence through mentoring support and undertaking a community engagement activity.

Who is Youth Frontiers for?

The program targets young people aged 12-16 years old who would most benefit from a mentoring relationship. This could include young people who:

  • are under-engaged in school and/or local community life
  • have had limited opportunities to participate actively in school and/or local community
  • are interested in building a mentoring relationship
  • are enthusiastic about becoming more involved in their communities
  • are likely to benefit notably from a program that strengthens personal, interpersonal and community-based protective factors against disengagement.
