About RYPMP refugee youth mentoring program

Individuals could get involved with the RYPMP as either a mentee, or mentor. Mentees are young people aged 17-25 from a refugee or refugee-like background. We also welcomed referrals for young people aged 15-16 at risk of disengaging from education.

Passionate Individuals

Mentors were people aged 21-35 who are keen to spend time with a young person. We asked mentees and mentors to commit for 12-18 months, and to meet at least once monthly. We ran group sessions and hang-outs on a regular basis.

Mixed activities and meet-ups

We designed a flexible, mixed-mode mentoring program that strives to enhance the economic, social and civic participation of young people and enhance their personal wellbeing and sense of self.

Imagine and Create

We were able to guide our youth in making socially valuable contributions through our new and exciting youth mentoring program, particularly in the areas of education, employment and efficient delivery of support services.
