Ladder’s mentoring program continues to support young people to thrive Ladder is a leader in youth mentoring and engagement, providing unique programs and opportunities to young people in communities across Australia. Ladder programs improve outcomes across key life domains including self-efficacy, community connection, health and wellbeing, independent living skills and education, employment, and training.Ladder is synonymous with mentoring and has been delivering its highly regarded mentoring program for over 15 years. Ladder’s Mentoring Program can be delivered in a group setting or on a one-to-one basis.Recently, we welcomed another young person into our mentoring program who has just been matched with his mentor, Ladder Development Coach, Michael.Last week, Josh participated in his first catch up with Michael and they hit it off straight away, both have a range of shared interests, including footy. There were a lot of laughs and it was a relaxed, comfortable environment for the two to get to know each other.Ladder’s mentoring framework focuses on young people’s strengths and what they can achieve, rather than focusing on any previous issues they may have experienced. Michael will work with mentee Josh to achieve his goals and and help him become the best version of himself.We look forward to seeing this mentoring relationship grow and helping Josh along his journey.
