Raise Foundation has provided a trained mentor for more than 6,300 young Australians, and we have trained more than 4,800 volunteers from the community to be youth mentors. In 2020 alone, we’re aiming to provide a Raise Mentor for 1,500 young people across NSW, VIC, QLD, SA, WA.
Research shows that quality mentoring greatly increases a young person’s confidence and ability to ask trusted adults for help. At Raise, we pride ourselves on having a number of differentiators which ensure the quality of the mentoring we provide to young people:
Highest Quality Mentor Training – Our best practice, industry leading Mentor Training Course has 12 modules (6 online and 6 group).
Evidence-Based Programs – Our program design is based on researched mentoring best practice including a requirement for consistent, frequent and long duration contact between the mentor and their mentee.
Qualified Mentor Support – Each of our mentoring programs is managed by a qualified Counsellor who supervises the mentoring match to maximise mentee safety as well as mentor skill development and provides case management support.
Comprehensive Evaluations – Raise Foundation’s programs work, and they make a significant impact on the lives of everyone involved. We conduct rigorous scientific evaluations pre and post program, and conduct qualitative focus groups.
