Become a Mentor for the Asista Mentoring Program (Melbourne)

Asista Mentoring Program

Asista Mentoring Program utilises the power of role models to positively impact girls aged 12-18 in the child protection system on their journey to become strong, resilient adults.

Through a range of social and recreational activities, ‘matches’ develop genuine and reciprocal relationships that build self-esteem, resilience and confidence.

All mentor volunteers are provided with strong, ongoing support, training and supervision. Mentors are asked to commit to the program for a minimum of 12 months, with a requirement of two-six hours fortnightly face-to-face contact with your mentee. It is also essential to have a driver’s licence and access to a car.

Asista is run in greater metropolitan Melbourne.
