MOU signed to continue mentoring program

Raise program june 17 2022

A memorandum of understanding has been signed between three local community groups to continue rolling out a youth mentoring program at Bowral and Moss Vale High schools.

The program called ' Raise ' involves mentors offering one to one support to young people.

Southern Highlands Foundation Chair Shelley Boyce said they're already seeing fantastic results.

"The young people who are in the program maybe disengaged at school or may just need someone in their life that they can talk to,"she said.

Raise was founded in 2008, and is is a not-for-profit organisation.

It delivers mentoring programs in six states and 184 high schools across Australia.
