Opportunities for Young People!

This Life Foundation invites young people from African background to register for the mentorship opportunities available with us.

Following months of consultations with young people from African background and their families, we have created opportunities to provide support to young people dealing with social challenges and lacking moral support and the guidance they need in our communities and the larger Australian society. Our findings shows that, a number of young people from African background struggle to fit in Australian society due to discrimination, lack of moral support, lack of information and inaccessible to services. It also shows a struggle with career choice and the general lack of motivation due to setbacks experienced as a result of discrimination and a feeling of lack of belongingness.

We have the opportunity to provide mentoring services to young people from African backgrounds. Our

Mentorship programs has been designed to ensure our clients have a one-0n-one support from their assigned mentos.
