YOUR CHANCE TO INVEST IN THE FUTURE OF OUR YOUNG PEOPLE!
CALL OUT FOR MENTORS to work with secondary students!
We are pleased to continue our partnership with Rosebud Secondary College in the valued school-based Youth Mentoring program at the school.
The program develops trusting, supportive relationships between carefully selected and trained community volunteers with at-risk junior secondary students.
The volunteers will have a 1:1 hour-long session every week, with volunteers passing on life skills, building self-esteem and personal development.
Activities can involve just talking, playing cards, cooking, physical activities, art, music - or whatever the mentee student chooses .... as well as regular group sessions that focus on issues pertinent to the students involved.

Partnership with Young Change Agents (YCA) gets underway
ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO PLAY A PART IN CHANGING YOUNG LIVES
CALL OUT FOR MENTORS!
Young Change Agents (YCA) empowers young people to identify problems in their community, reframing these as opportunities, and developing solutions with an entrepreneurial lens. The aim is to make it easy for schools and teachers to introduce and embed entrepreneurial learning and design thinking.
After a huge amount of work behind the scenes to get this of the ground, the Club's partnership with YCA, with funding from the Victorian Government, is now almost up and running. YCA advertised to schools across the Peninsula calling for Expressions of Interest to be involved, resulting in a very positive response; this represents 358 students will be involved in programs. It is hoped that some schools will be involved over the next three years, thus sustaining the benefits of the program for local students.
