About this opportunity

Raise Foundation improves the lives of young people facing profound challenges through our Ismo program in high schools. We are currently recruiting for mentors to support young people in need in Melbourne in 2017. You just need two hours a week during Term 2 and Term 3 to make a big difference in a young person’s life.

You might be retired, parenting at home, studying, or have flexible work hours. You don’t have to be a teacher or an expert to be a mentor. You just need to be a good listener and able to act as a sounding board for ideas and aspirations. Your skills and life experiences can make a real difference to a young person in your local community. You need a couple of hours a week, a positive outlook and a genuinely compassionate interest in young people. We offer free, TAFE accredited training to give you the skills you need to change the life of a young person. We need lots of mentors, and male mentors are particularly in demand. Don’t delay, training is in Feb/March 2017 and you will start mentoring in April 2017.
