Mentoring

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
