Volunteer Counsellors to Mentor Young People:
Raise Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that recruit’s volunteers from local communities to mentor young people identified by their high school to benefit from a neutral-positive role model. We have 10 fully funded programs across Brisbane in 2019, with many more across Australia, and with the help of volunteers, Raise aims to support over 150 young Queenslanders (and over 1500 young people nationally) to feel more resilient, capable and connected.
Raise Foundation would like to make this opportunity available to the QCA Members, particularly those who are looking for volunteer opportunities to give back to their communities. Each volunteer mentor is provided with free training in youth mentoring to equip them with the necessary skills needed to make a real difference in the life of a young person. No other special skills or qualifications are required. The volunteer time commitment is 2 hours per week during school term time.
