Mentoring for Children

Pillars Ka Pou Whakahou mentoring services are in Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland) and Ōtautahi (Christchurch).

Once a whānau has received social work support and have achieved some of their goals, our Mentoring Coordinators match the tamariki with an askable, trusted adult from our community of volunteers. These volunteers are trained and supported by our Mentoring Coordinators and are well prepared to provide the children with experiences and opportunities outside of their horizons. They act as an aunty, uncle, big brother or big sister figure e.t.c. who are the joketellers, adventurers and friends tamariki need.

I was bored, lonely and sad before meeting my mentor. Now I have a new friend.
