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.
Now in its 25th year, Asista Mentoring Program has consistently delivered positive outcomes for both mentees and their mentors.
