“I was struck by the energy at Raise, which is amazing. It is my opinion that the work Raise Foundation is doing is outstanding. I believe strongly in mentorship both for the mentor and the mentee, and I believe that Raise has hit the mark.”
David Gonski AC
1 in 4 young Australians have a mental health condition, more young people die by suicide than by any other cause, and 1 in 10 remain completely disengaged from education, training and employment. This is not okay.
At Raise we are passionate about the positive impact our evidence-based mentoring programs are having on the outcomes for young people as evidenced by our own evaluation studies, independent impact reviews and international research, and we invite philanthropists to partner with us to expand this impact.
Our vision is to create thriving communities and we are actively pursuing the build of a powerful mentoring movement by working hard towards our Strategic Impact Plan, which will see us offering our programs to every public secondary school across Australia.
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, so too will it take a collective of like minded philanthropists and partners to build this capability. Together we are changing the lives of young people. We can help them move from a path of disengagement, poor mental health, and underemployment towards a path of hope, confidence, resilience, education engagement and employability to ensure they become happy and healthy adults. If you’d like to partner with us, please reach out to find out how you can change the future of young Australians.
