Mentoring, Tutoring and More

Little Dreamers

We believe positive role models can create a lasting and vital impact in the lives of Young Carers.

Mentors and tutors provide Young Carers with someone to spend time with, provide valuable guidance, and increase social connection. Our volunteers can offer help with schoolwork, provide mentorship and give Young Carers a break from their caring roles.

"In the future, I want to see every school, public and private aware of who young carers are, common issues they may face and support staff who are equipped to refer young carers to local, state and federal services that can make a real difference including working to mitigate the negative mental health effects a Young Carer may experience.

There’s an intense amount of pressure on young people with caring responsibilities, someone needs to pick up the slack." 💪

"This year’s National Carers Week theme ‘Millions of Reasons to Care’ reminds me of one of my favourite songs ‘A Million Dreams’ from the movie The Greatest Showman. Any other Zendaya fans here? ✨

As the line in the song goes, ‘I think of what the world could be, a vision of the one I see’. This is a world where other Young Carers, like me, are well supported in their role so they can reach their full potential."
