THANK YOU SALVADOR! Salvador is one of our newest volunteer mentors in a one-to-one match which has been going about four months. Salvador has been so inspired by his experience that he has just VOLUNTEERED for us at the Moonee Ponds Volunteer Expo. Taking on the role of a ‘human library’ (the Expo was in the Sam Merrifield Library), he talked to anyone who came up to our stand and told them about his positive experience as a TRY mentor volunteer. His enthusiasm for youth mentoring was infectious and a ‘customer magnet’ for all the inspiring mentors who passed by our stand. We have had just so many enquiries!
Youth Mentoring Week is a celebration throughout Australia of youth mentoring and all its success, potential and opportunity. This week provides us all with a great opportunity to:
- Celebrate the positive impact of youth mentoring on young people
- Recognise and celebrate the contribution of mentors
- Raise the profile and promote the benefits of mentoring
