Women and Mentoring - Volunteer mentors providing life changing support for women caught up in the criminal justice system

Tuesday, 4 May 2021 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

"Women and Mentoring (WAM) offers a unique, early intervention program that supports women charged with a criminal offence by matching them individually with a supportive female mentor. The volunteer mentors are trained and resourced to provide appropriate support to the program participants, to share their skills and to contribute to the wider community." - Women and Mentoring Website

 

We delve more into this unique and inspiring volunteer lead program based in Melbourne. We get an inside look into how the mentor and mentee relationship has indelibly transfromed the life of Sammy, a woman caught up in the criminal justice system in Melbourne.
