Mentors - Mentoring Support Program - Mount Gambier

Whitelion

Do you like the idea of contributing to a nonprofit organisation supporting young people at risk? Are you able to become a positive role model in a young person’s life?

ABOUT THE ROLE

At Whitelion we match young people at risk with a mentor for 3 hours per week. These hours are usually after school and offer great flexibility.

Based in the Mount Gambier region, as a Mentor, you will:

  • Work with care teams, care workers, families, and case managers but predominantly, your time will be spent one on one with the young person.
  • Be able to claim $30.00 per session to be spent on meaningful activities with the young person.
  • Complete monthly reports and as such, administration skills and communication are imperative to the role.
  • Spend time in the community with young people, enjoying social activities and helping them strive towards their goals.
  • Provide guidance and support to a young person. You will be a stable, safe, and reliable person for them to talk to, so those looking for on-going relationships will be given priority.

Experience dealing with young people who display complex behaviours and knowledge of trauma informed care will be highly regarded.

WHO WE ARE

Whitelion is passionate about creating a workplace that promotes and values diversity. Our vision is for a world where no young person is left behind, where all young people have the right to equitable opportunities to reach their potential. We exist to build positive connections and pathways to work for young people at risk. Success depends on the voice and lived experience of highly vulnerable, high-risk young people, systems around them and the Whitelion community.

Whitelion works hard to create a flexible, inclusive environment for staff to grow and succeed. We work with our mentors and believe in supporting our team in every way we can. We can’t wait for you to join us!
