We promote the value of mentoring across the community, link mentors to organisations seeking volunteer mentors and we encourage volunteers to become mentors.
“I’m grateful for this course. It has empowered me and clarified my role as a youth mentor. I am full of confidence”. Sheelagh, Warners Bay HS
“One of the best courses I have attended – and I have attended a lot.” Barbara, Samaritans
Networking and Professional Development Events
Several times each year, Mentor Support Network members are invited to participate in our networking and learning events, where we invite expert speakers
to present to us on a particular subject. Speakers may be practitioners, researchers or representatives of organisations providing youth support. All
have considerable experience and expertise to share with our members.
For a full list of courses currently on offer by Mentor Support Network, please refer to our Events page.
The Mentor Support Network end-of-year breakfast is a celebration of mentors and an acknowledgment of the powerful impact mentoring can have on the mentor and mentee. Individual mentors nominated by Mentor Support Network organisational members are publicly recognised for their outstanding contributions.
