MATES Mentoring Program

The MATES Mentoring Program provides positive role models who mentor, assist, target, engage and enhance the skills and life experiences of young people.

MATES matches students (Mentees) in school with a volunteer (Mentor) from the local community.

Mentors and mentees catch up for one hour, once a fortnight for one year.

Who can be a mentor?

We need volunteers who are:

  • over the age of 18
  • have a genuine concern or interest in young people
  • want to make a difference in a young person's life
  • are able to spend one hour a fortnight with a young person for one year
  • already have or are able to obtain a Working With Children check

Further information available on the Mates Mentoring page on the Wimmera Southern Mallee LLEN website.
