YMentoring is a community based not-for-profit mentoring program operated by YMCA Perth for youth in the metro area. We match youth with a caring adult who can offer support, guidance and friendship. The service is offered to all youth in the community between 7-20 years of age.
The program promotes long lasting friendships and allows young people to interact with an adult who is outside the family circle and school system. Having someone older to hang out with and assist in setting achievable goals can help increase their self-esteem and improve their confidence.
Our mentors come from all walks of life with a wide variety of interests and experiences. They have a common desire to make a meaningful contribution to the life of a young person and help them grow in body mind and spirt.
