Big Sister Mentors

Rebuilding lives through mentoring


Mentoring is connection, sharing knowledge, skills, and life experience to guide another towards reaching their full potential; it is a journey of shared discovery.

Sister2sister matches Mentors (Big Sisters) and Mentees (Little Sisters) who attend group psychoeducational workshops and activities to assist with building a trusted and safe mentor relationship, connect with peers and help build resilience and empower girls to realise their limitless potential. The program is supported by our staff and volunteer team who provide mentor and mentee support throughout the program year.

What skills do I need to become a Big Sister Mentor? 


As a Big Sister you need to be a great listener, be kind, patient, and be able to commit to the program dates. We provide you with mentor training and ongoing support throughout your mentoring journey to ensure you are prepared and ready to mentor your little sister.

What is the time commitment for Mentors?


The Sister2sister Mentoring Programs runs for 8 months.

Big sisters must complete a series of recruitment and training sessions before they are matched with a little sister and start the program. All recruitment and training sessions are held after hours and/or weekends.

Once the program has commenced Big Sister mentors are required to attend:

  • The Sister2sister Camp (3 days),
  • Monthly mentor support session (1.5 hours - one evening per month), and
  • Monthly Saturday S2s Events with mentees (one Saturday a month 10am – 4pm).

See our calendar of dates for the 2024 Program.
