Youth support & education programs
Empowering adolescent girls to believe in themselves.
In Australia, significant numbers of adolescent girls are experiencing a range of complex challenges. Exposure to these challenges can negatively impact an adolescent girl’s health and well-being, social and emotional development, educational outcomes and employment opportunities. It can change how they see themselves, their future and the world around them, with many girls telling us they feel feeling sad, scared, angry, alone, and at times hopeless.

Who we help
We work with families, school counsellors, youth workers, community service caseworkers and welfare agencies and to identify girls in the greatest need of education, support and guidance.
How we help
We recruit, screen and train successful female volunteer mentors (Big Sisters) to partner with adolescent girls who are facing complex challenges. We support them through a structured year-long mentoring and psychoeducation program.
We inspire empowerment for Little Sisters to navigate life’s complex challenges by equipping them with life skills, connection and a sense of belonging in a safe and caring environment.
