We believe positive role models can create a lasting and vital impact to the lives of Young Carers.
Our Group Mentoring Program has helped foster some amazing bonds between Young Carers and our volunteers. This is thanks to our thorough mentor 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.Apply Now
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.
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.
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 an online platform called ‘Zoom’ due to health and safety reasons throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
