Young people need you more than ever
Across Australia, young people are experiencing challenges that impact their mental health, social and emotional wellbeing and school engagement. They are struggling to cope, dealing with a multitude of complex challenges including depression, anxiety, bullying, fear of the future and staying connected and engaged with school.
An Early Intervention Solution
In partnership with schools and the broader community we empower young people to navigate challenges and believe in themselves. At Raise, we recruit, train and screen volunteers to become youth mentors before matching them with a young person (typically 13-14 years old) in a local, public high school. Our comprehensive, best-practice training equips everyday people with the skills they need to deliver our weekly face-to-face and one-to-one in-school mentoring program.
