Youth Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Project matches volunteers with disconnected young people with an adult mentor to share recreational activities, fun and friendship. The program aims to develop the self-confidence and resilience of young people, to expand their educational and vocational possibilities and to strengthen their connection to family and community.  

Are you eligible for a mentor?

  • Are you 12-25 years old?
  • Do you live, go to school or work in the City of Melton?
  • Are you experiencing disconnection from significant adults, family and support systems?
  • Is this disconnection effecting your schooling, health, wellbeing and participation in other activities?

By matching you with one of our dedicated volunteer youth mentors, YMP can help with:

  • Improving your self-esteem and confidence
  • Developing positive social relationships
  • Empowering you to participate in your community
