Young Women’s Mentoring Program

Resized Young Women’s Mentoring Program

One of the greatest privileges of having a position of leadership is celebrating the important role young women play in our communities. Kingston Youth Services recognises the value of investing in young women and will continue to create opportunities for them to develop.

This is a valuable opportunity to be mentored by women who are experts in their fields and who have vast experiences to draw and learn from. The program will offer a unique experience to young women, allowing them to form connections and networks that extend into the wider community.

The Young Women’s Mentoring Program is a capacity building program for young women in senior high school with a strong emphasis on developing their leadership skill set, strengthening their interpersonal skills, building their social capital and creating greater access to local networking opportunities. The program encourages and supports young women to invest in their own potential and form a powerful and supportive peer network as well as meaningful links to positive community role models.

We are inviting young women in Years 10 to 12 to take part in this opportunity where they will be matched to a mentor for nine months, using their time together to help unpack interests, goals, and wider career and life aspirations. Additionally there will be rapport building and an opportunity for them to learn from the mentor’s own leadership journey, share experiences and lessons learnt and inspire them to realise their full potential as future leaders.

The program will be managed by Youth Services including the promotion, recruitment and allocation of participants and all the required checks and balances required to meet mandated legislation for working with young people and volunteers.
