DO YOU HAVE TWO HOURS A WEEK TO GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY?

One of the most valuable activities we have been involved with is helping young people to plan their future.

Mentoring is the development of a one-to-one relationship, where a more experienced person helps a less experienced person achieve their goals. 

 Mentors come from every walk of life - so give it a go.

 Plan-it Youth operates in the Hunter ( including Lake Macquarie) and Central Coast.

bringing generations together

Plan-it Youth Hunter is a growing network of people with a positive attitude - volunteers, teachers and supporters who enjoy learning together and know they can make a difference.

Why Mentor?

There are many different reasons that people choose mentoring. The common ground is a concern and interest in helping young people. Mentors like to give back to the community, meet new people, be useful and keep learning. Many people are pleasantly surprised at the two-way benefits of mentoring.

There are also other opportunities for volunteer participation in program management; mentor support, training and workshops; special projects for students.

RETIREES, GRANDPARENTS, ELDERS and MATURE JOBSEEKERS - use the wisdom of their life experience to ‘give something back’ and ‘stay involved’.

UNIVERSITY AND TAFE STUDENTS - link with the community and often gain job skills and new networks along the way.

BUSINESS PEOPLE and EMPLOYEES – use their work to make a personal contribution to young people and their community.

PARENTS, RELATIVES, FRIENDS and NEIGHBOURS (of primary and high school students) – meet new friends and find it helpful to learn about the school system.
