We recently held mentor training with the AFL Indigenous Woomeras program. 

The Woomeras mentoring program is an extension to the weeklong residential program 25 young female Indigenous participants were part of at the beginning of 2021.

The mentoring training will be followed by mentee training and then the matching of mentors with mentees.

Ladder will facilitate monthly learning development program sessions with mentors and mentees, alongside the mentoring program that the team has designed and implemented for the AFL.

The sessions will continue to build upon the themes of cultural identity, resilience, communication and decision making from the initial program.

Underpinning these themes, the program will also address health and wellbeing, mental health, goal setting and a range of self-help tools to further develop leadership and personal capacity within everyone.

We look forward to working with the Woomeras program and supporting our young female Indigenous participants over the coming months.
