Since 1883, Mentoring has been embedded into the culture, practices and values of TRY, as we witness every day the powerful outcomes of youth mentoring.

Young people are faced with complex social issues, such a high underemployment rates, complex family structures, difficulties around transitioning from school to work, and high mental health issues. Mentoring is an effective early intervention program, which can support young people to cope with the difficulties of life, gain self-confidence and resilience. Often as well, the Mentor gain as much from the mentoring relationship as the young person, such as increased personal and social development and a better connection with the younger generation.
