Mentors work with a child to help them through a difficult time in their life as their parent or caregiver has gone to prison.
They meet regularly with the child providing advice and assistance where required.
Whatever your path in life, you may have time to be a mentor. Currently our mentors include university students, business owners, semi-retired people or people from other organisations and agencies.
Our experienced team recruits, trains and supervises our volunteer mentors so they feel encouraged and supported in their volunteer work. Our mentors also love the relationship they build with other mentors, and this has resulted in great friendships into the future.
It is a simple process with great outcomes for the child and new learnings for the mentor. It is a highly valuable experience for all.
