Outcomes for young people

Young people come into the mentoring program for a range of reasons, however we find many of them share similar concerns. 

At the start of the program the common issues young people report in their pre-program survey are: anxiety, bullying, depression, financial hardship, self harm, discrimination, disordered eating, homelessness. By the end of the program, 76% of our mentees tell us that the program helped them cope with these issues.

Our 2023 evaluation report is packed with our outcomes and previous reports are here.
