Jewish Care Victoria has a long history of working with, and supporting, young people in the Jewish community by offering youth mentoring programs that connect 14-18 year-olds with independent and trained mentors aged 25 years and over.

October 23-29 is Youth Mentoring Week, recognising and celebrating the positive impact participating in youth mentoring programs has on the lives of young people and mentors.

 This Youth Mentoring Week, Jewish Care is encouraging people interested in youth mentoring to get involved. Participation in Jewish Care’s Young Achievers and Youth Aspire Mentoring Programs is free-of-charge for mentees and mentors. Expressions of interest from young people interested in participating in Jewish Care’s Young Achievers Program close on 6 November, whilst expressions of interest for participation in the Youth Aspire Program are accepted year-round. Adults interested in becoming mentors can also contact Jewish Care at any time throughout the year.
