1 in 4 young people are unhappy with their lives – having a mentor to guide them can change the course of a young person’s life. Anyone can become a mentor. You’ll be fully trained and equipped to support a year 8 student in a school near you – all you need is the passion to make a difference.
At Raise, we provide best-practice youth mentoring programs in public high schools across Australia. As a volunteer showing up each week just for them, your support will empower them to better cope with life’s challenges and help them become more resilient and hopeful for the future.
Be a part of our mentoring movement
All you need to do is apply. We’ll train you to become a Raise Youth Mentor before matching you with a young person at a school near you. Fully supported by a Raise Program Counsellor, each week you’ll meet with your mentee 1-on-1, being there just for them, listening and providing support.
Everything you need to know about mentoring a young person is wrapped up in this short video.
