RYPMP Program End

Share This Post

The RYPMP program gave a unique opportunity to facilitate connection and friendships in young people from different cultural backgrounds.

RYPMP aimed to empower young people to maximise their potential and to explore avenues that they thought would not be possible. We worked together with mentors and mentees to encourage self-development and growth.

In turn this created a wider understanding for both mentors and mentees on the diversity of our local community. Over 70% of our mentees found this connection to have a positive impact on their wellbeing demonstrating the importance of programs in focused on community connection.

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was involved in the RYPMP. The mentors that gave their time, knowledge, life and passion to another person, the staff and team for organising many hours of activities, but mostly to mentees, to those that put themselves out there, to meet someone new, open their world to new opportunities and experiences.
