GROUP MENTORING

Our Group Mentoring program consists of weekly one hour sessions over eight weeks. Facilitated online by Little Dreamers staff, Young Carers will work alongside one another to build lifelong skills and friendships. Across eight weeks, we’ve got plenty of fun activities and workshops about health and wellbeing, personal development, self esteem, independence, self evaluation and friendship.

Who and where?

The program is run specifically for Young Carers aged 12-16. This program is available to Young Carers across Australia except in QLD and certain regions in NSW (where we offer IPPS and other programs via the Carer Gateway). All that’s needed to participate is access to a computer, laptop or iPad and internet connection and we’ll send you a resource pack before you begin.

ONLINE TUTORING

Online Tutoring provides Young Carers with extra support in their education, keeping them engaged in schoolwork and studies with regular one-on-one sessions. The program sees Young Carers matched with one of our amazing Little Dreamers volunteers based on subject needs and time availability.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Online Tutoring is currently only available for Victorian students from primary school to year 12. Via Zoom, tutors will help guide students through their homework and school related tasks to provide a helping hand with their education. The program gives Young Carers the opportunity to get to know their tutor, create a positive relationship and gain a passionate role model.

Running weekly online via Zoom, Hour of Power is all about having a laugh, playing games and meeting other Young Carers. Young Carers will get to test their general knowledge and engage in activities ranging from charades, trivia, word games, ‘Guess the Song’ and more.

Hour of Power is run in two groups, for Young Carers aged 6-9 (Wednesdays) and 10+ (Thursdays). Note: both sessions start at 4pm AEDT.
