What is required to be a mentor?  

All young people need a champion. A caring adult who believes in them and walks beside them, encouraging and supporting them to unlock their potential.

Mentors for BIG Futures in-school mentoring:

  • Are aged between 18 to 80 years
  • Undertake a screening process to protect the safety of the volunteer and young person
  • Receive face to face and online mentor training
  • Are supported by a mentoring professional through the whole mentoring experience.
  • Are matched to a young person at school based on interests, compatibility and location 
  • Commit to approximately one to two hours per week during school hours for between a 12 week and full school year period (program duration varies depending on the BIG Futures program – enquire now or contact the Mentoring Specialist in your area to learn more about the time commitment for programs near you).
  • Don't need qualifications, just a desire to make a difference in a young person's life and to help them build the skills and confidence needed to unlock their potential
