Springboard Community Works will hold a mentoring information night for prospective volunteers interested in supporting at-risk youth.
Mentoring coordinator Sheralyn Cotton says the programme matches volunteers with young people aged between eight and 12 who, for a variety of reasons, need an additional positive person to stand in their corner for a season.
“Mentoring is a one year commitment to hang out with one of these young people for a couple of hours each week.
It’s as simple as that,” she says. Springboard currently has 19 young people matched with mentors and many more on the waiting list.
Interested volunteers are invited to find out more over mulled wine and cheese at Springboard Community Works, 58 Hamatana Road, Snells Beach, on Monday, July 1, at 7pm.
