Mentors / Support Workers
What Mentors Offer
Mentoring is a positive, supportive relationship, encouraging adults and young people to develop to their fullest potential. Mentoring is multi-faceted; it can be formal or informal and may change and evolve as the needs of the mentee change. The responsibilities of a mentor vary depending on the needs of the individual client. Typically they include: providing practical and emotional support for a client. This may also include providing support to access the community.
Our peer mentors are provided with training and supervision from our clinical team to ensure that support is coordinated and individualised with the knowledge and understanding of what is specifically needed to meet your goals.
Peer Mentoring has shown to have positive impacts on:
• Connectedness to school, peers and the community
• Feelings of competency and self-efficacy
• Grades and academic achievement
• Prosocial behaviour and attitudes
