Mentoring and Tutoring
We believe positive role models can create a lasting and vital impact to the lives of Young Carers.
Our Group Mentoring and Online Tutoring Programs have helped foster amazing bonds between Young Carers and our volunteers. This is thanks to our thorough volunteer selection, research and matching process.
UPDATE: Due to current COVID-19 circumstances, our Group Mentoring Program will now be running as an online program. Find out more and apply for the program below.
WHAT IS GROUP MENTORING?
Our Group Mentoring Program will now be running as an online program. It will run for 1 hour, once per week for eight weeks. Facilitated by our amazing Little Dreamers team, you’ll work with other Young Carers to create lasting friendships and build lifelong skills.
During the eight weeks, we’ve got plenty of fun activities and workshops we will host through an online platform to tackle topics including health and wellbeing, personal development, self esteem, independence, self evaluation and friendship.
Who and where?
Our program is run specifically for Young Carers aged 12-16. This program is available to Young Carers Australia-wide (excludes QLD and certain regions in NSW). At the moment, Group Mentoring sessions will take place via Zoom, all you will need is access to a computer, laptop or iPad and internet connection and we’ll send you a resource pack before you begin.Apply Now
WHAT IS ONLINE TUTORING?
The Online Tutoring Program aims to provide Young Carers with extra support in their education, keeping them engaged in schoolwork and providing some relief to parents. This program will see students matched with one of our amazing Little Dreamers volunteers, based on subject needs and time availability.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
The program is available for students in primary school to year 12 in Victoria.
Through Zoom, tutors will help guide students through their homework and school related tasks, providing an extra helping hand and supporting them in their learning. The program gives Young Carers the opportunity to get to know their tutor, create a positive relationship and gain a passionate role model.Apply For Support Sign Up
