volunteer youth mentor

The Program

The Youth Mentoring Program seeks to assist young people who are currently or have been in contact with the Juvenile Justice system due to offending. The program aims to assist young people to reconnect, meaningfully with their communities whilst pursuing opportunities for further training, education and employment. Mentors will be matched with participants and support them in the
community for approximately 12 months. The Youth Mentoring Program will enable young people to be linked to positive volunteer mentors who can assist with building community networks, developing pro social skills and supporting the achievement of self-determined goals, including those relating to education and employment that have been established through the initial contact with
the Joint Support Program.

The opportunity

The Volunteer Mentor provides valuable mentoring support to young people who have been in contact with the justice system to assist them to articulate their goals, reconnect with the community and pursue positive lifestyles that minimise future risk of reoffending. Utilising a strengths based approach.

The impact

The Volunteer Mentor will identify and leverage the participant’s skills, competencies and interests toward the achievement of agreed outcomes. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the world’s largest humanitarian network.
