The Youth Frontiers program connects disengaged youth with a local community member who can provide mentoring and support to build life skills and self-confidence.
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).
