Youth mentoring

ConnectALL and Youth Frontiers

Through our ConnectALL and Youth Frontiers mentoring programs, we offer positive guidance and support to help young people realise their potential to achieve their goals.


ConnectALL

The ConnectALL program is a free, in-class mentoring service, for young people in primary and secondary education.

How does ConnectALL work?

The ConnectALL program creates positive outcomes through education, identity and health and wellbeing. By working hand in hand with you, your child and the school, ConnectALL aims to:

  • Increase attendance
  • Encourage participation
  • Help set and achieve goals
  • Improve relationships

ConnectALL provides school-based:

  • Mentoring and case management
  • Tailored, in-class group and one-on-one support
  • Occupational Therapy support
  • Referrals and transport access to other support services

Where is ConnectALL offered?

The ConnectALL program is currently being offered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people from Kindergarten to Year 6 attending Wellington Public School.

In 2017/18 a similar program was run through Narromine Public School, NSW. This program achieved remarkable outcomes for students and their families, and was the recipient of the 'Wudhagaragarra' Award – Excellence in Indigenous Education, 2018 School Community Partnership.

The program can be tailored to meet the needs of young people in your school, and delivered by culturally trained staff.

Youth Frontiers

The program focuses on children aged 12-16, who aren’t engaged in school or local community life and have had limited opportunities to do so.

It aims to assist you to overcome participation barriers and actively participate in your community through:

  • Promoting team work and fostering positive relationships
  • Building confidence, self-esteem and communication skills, and
  • Developing life, leadership and decision-making skills

How does Youth Frontiers work?

Within a culturally safe space you will be matched with local volunteer adult mentors, to work collaboratively on a community project of your own choosing.Under the program, you will receive a minimum of 35 hours mentoring – to include at least 10 hours of one-on-one and face-to-face mentoring.

Where can I access Youth Frontiers?

Youth Frontiers is currently being offered to communities in Far West (Broken Hill) and Western NSW (Dubbo and surrounding areas).
