The Youth & Family Mentoring Program supports young people in the education system who are experiencing difficulty interacting, contributing and participating to the community.

This program no longer receives any funding and relies on fundraising to keep it going. The annual Tour de Bay is our biggest event of the year with all proceeds going directly to fund this program.

What do Mentors do?

  • visit students one to 2 times per week at school
  • provide positive support by listening, assisting with goal setting
  • helping them to recognise their strengths & develop them
  • be a sounding board for ideas and problems.
  • provide positive feedback to encourage young people to achieve their goals in life (i.e. education, training, employment and intellectual, physical, social, emotional, spiritual development).
