Victoria Police Leaders Mentoring Program
There is plenty of evidence to prove that the Victoria Police Leaders Mentoring Program which has been operating for over 15 years, has brought about successful impact for both the mentees and the mentors - some of whom continue to meet well beyond the life of the year-long program.
An innovative project from the Rotary Club of Central Melbourne, the project now extends to Rotarians across Districts 9800, 9780, 9790, 9810, 9820. Having been involved previously, Rotary Rosebud Rye was invited to participate this year, and we are privileged to be working alongside local resident Inspector Natalie Dollard (Mentors: Libby Wilson, Heather Barton).
On Tuesday 25 October, the group from the 2022-2023 program met over breakfast to further explore this year's theme Social Cohesion, defined as 'the willingness of members of society to cooperate with each other in order to survive and prosper'.
We were fascinated to hear about the expanded work of Blue Light - an independent organisation, with local police representation - in secondary and primary schools - and came away determined to further investigate bringing the DASH program to primary schools on the Peninsula.
Our mentee Nat did a great job as the 'anchor' for the event opening with a reminder about the importance, benefits and positive impact that is achieved when members of all parts of communities work together. ON YA NAT!
Green Gecko - uplifting and inspiring stories of amazing opportunities for young people - one success story after another.
What could be more inspiring than hearing how young people have been brought from begging on the streets of Cambodia, to a fulfilling life - creating well balanced people who are reconnecting with the communities and creating a ripple effective of positive change throughout society.
On 14th September, 2022 Club Members were inspired to hear first hand the personal stories of some amazing young Cambodians. Through mentoring, training, health initiatives and social enterprises, families have been able to successfully break the cycle of begging and dramatically reduce the many negative consequences of living in poverty.
Each of the young people - now advanced in their University degrees - have plans to build the future economy of their country.
