Courage to Grow

Breakthrough Mentoring is a program that Whitelion have been running in NSW for over 15 years. It is a program that truly speaks to our purpose of providing positive connections and pathways to work for young people at risk. As such, we are excited to announce that we are bringing Breakthrough Mentoring to Victoria.

The program matches mentors who are able to use their own employment experience and networks, with young people, with an aim of supporting them in sourcing work experience, training opportunities or ongoing employment.

Mentors receive accredited training with NSW TAFE in preparation for the program, which is a commitment of 2 hours a week for 6 weeks and will be completed online. All mentors and mentees will be supported on their journey by a Breakthrough Youth Worker.

We will be running Breakthrough Mentoring from our Western, Southern and North-East Whitelion offices, and are now recruiting mentors. The commitment for Breakthrough Mentors is approx. six months, and volunteers can of course re-join our other Mentoring programs (CIP, RAMP and Community Connections) afterwards.
