‘Youth Frontiers is an early intervention youth mentoring program. The program will support girls aged 10-17 years who are AT RISK or have been in contact with the justice and child protection systems. Examples of factors considered “at risk” and hence eligible for a referral includes – disengagement from school; school suspension/expulsion; family domestic violence; gang affiliations; family involvement in crime; trauma; run in with police; etc.
Mentees participating in the program will be matched with trained mentors based on their personality, shared interests, and cultural background. Mentees will meet up with their mentor weekly for up to one year, where they will engage in 1-on-1 or group mentoring to provide positive role modeling that will build life skills and character.
The objective of the program is to increase the young person’s safety, welfare and wellbeing, and connection to community thereby reducing the likelihood of contact with the justice system.
CORE Community Services is delivering this program in the Fairfield LGA. Eligible mentees will need to live in or have connections with Fairfield LGA.
