1. Hello!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a mentor with Youth Focus!

Before you complete the following expression of interest form please ensure:
- You reside in, or can travel to, the Perth metropolitan area on a fortnightly basis;
- Are at least 21 years of age; and
- Do not have a family member (including children, siblings, spouse or parents/caregivers) currently employed with, or accessing clinical services from, Youth Focus (this includes both youth and family counselling).

This is also a reminder that our mentoring relationships are a 12 month commitment whereby mentors are required to meet with their mentee every fortnight for between 1 to 3 hours, depending on the chosen activity. It is also important to note that the role of the mentor with Youth Focus is not to counsel the young person, but to show support by being a positive role model.

Our mentors are allocated $35 per mentoring session for activity costs, and are reimbursed for mileage (travel costs) to and from mentoring activities and appointments for up to 150km per month.

We thank you for expressing interest in volunteering with Youth Focus, and will be sure to notify you via email when we next open applications for new mentors.

For further enquiries regarding mentoring with Youth Focus, please contact the Youth Programs Coordinator on (08) 6266 4333 or via email ypc@youthfocus.com.au
