Volunteer With Junction
Are you passionate about making positive change in the lives of young people? Could you be a mentor for young people living independently?
Junction is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to take on a Live-In Mentor (Lead Tenant) role with young people exiting the Out of Home Care system.
The Live-In Mentor program is a unique program that connects at-risk youth with volunteer adult mentors. Mentors, also known as “Lead Tenants”, reside in a property with one to two young people.
In this space, Live-In Mentors will exhibit positive role modelling and share basic living skills such as cooking, budgeting and house maintenance, whilst still maintaining the freedom to engage in work or study.
The young people participating in this program are aged between 16-18 years and are seeking to transition into independent living after exiting residential care. The Lead Tenant program seeks to empower young people experiencing disadvantage by giving them the tools to continue to lead healthy, independent lives.
For more information on the Live in Mentor role, including training and assessment process, please contact Kat Hodgens (Homelessness and Specialist Youth Services, Service Manager ) at Katharine.firstname.lastname@example.org or 0260437400, or visit our website https://junction.org.au/ Volunteer with us.
The L2P Program is a community-based initiative developed to assist young learner drivers, who do not have access to a supervising driver or a vehicle because of financial, personal, or family circumstances to obtain their Victorian Probationary Car Licence. Volunteer mentor drivers are matches with a young person and they supervise them for the mandatory 120 hours and guide their development as a safe driver. Volunteers undergo a Police Check and are also required to apply for a Working With Children Check, Driver History Check and complete 10 hours of VicRoads’ training. The program operates in conjunction with Vic Roads the City of Wodonga.

Mentors help young people through support, advice, and guidance and by helping in practical ways during this transitional period of the young person’s life.
