Could you be our next lead tenant?
We’re seeking expressions of interest from volunteers to be lead tenants in Wangaratta and Wodonga, living rent-free and providing day-to-day guidance and positive role modelling for young people.
Our lead tenants live in homes around north-east Victoria and do not pay utility bills.
The lead tenant works collaboratively with our staff in monitoring and responding to the wellbeing of young people.
Specialist Adolescent Services Manager Rachel Habgood said lead tenants were needed in Wangaratta and Wodonga to support young people leaving Out of Home Care and taking steps towards independent living.
“A good lead tenant is someone who can be a positive influence on a young person’s life and support them to improve their living skills,” she said.
“Lead Tenants receive training and support from our team at Junction Support Services.”
One of our Lead Tenants, Danny, said he decided to volunteer because wanted to support local young people in need.
“Being a Lead Tenant means I can provide advice and support to young people who have not had the same opportunities in life that I have,” he says.
“I get a strong sense of satisfaction and pride in being able to help the young people to build their living skills.”
