Could you mentor a young mum or teenager? Or are you a young mum? If so, read on and PLEASE SHARE! “Bump is a mentoring program, from the Raise Foundation, for young mums aged 13 – 25. It’s different to other parenting groups because you’ll have the support of a mentor to welcome you, chat with and be guided by. It’s fun and has themed workshops with activities such as scrap-booking, cooking, arts & crafts. We offer skill building in budgeting, legal rights, education and employment and much more.
“Bump is a fun way to meet other mums as well as have some much needed ‘me time’ with experienced babysitters on-site to play with the bubs and kids. Bump is free to attend with food / drinks included. Bump is truly a unique program and our graduates feel connected, supported and keen to return.

“Could you mentor a High School student?
Raise is currently seeking interested volunteers who are able to spare 2 hours a week during school terms to mentor a young person. Mentors might be retired, parenting at home, studying, or have flexible work hours. You don’t have to be a teacher or an expert to be a mentor!!
“With the help of volunteers, the not-for-profit, Raise Foundation aims to support over 1,500 young people nationally to feel more resilient, capable and connected.
“Each volunteer mentor is provided with free training in youth mentoring to equip them with the necessary skills needed to make a real difference in the life of a young person. It is So rewarding!
