Youth Employment & Training Services
Ignite Mentoring offers quality, effective mentoring in Wagga Wagga for youth aged 12-18 years. Mentors are community members who have undergone training and screening before being matched with a young person based on similar interests and compatibility. Matches meet for an hour once per week or fortnight and engage in activities in the community while exploring the young person’s goals, aspirations, skills and qualities. In addition to the community mentoring, Ignite also has a program in collaboration with Juvenile Justice, as well as a program with a local public school working with younger students with a literacy focus called Little Readers.
The Ignite Mentoring program is offered by Anglicare NSW South, West and ACT.
