Equip activities

The Equip mentoring program has started for a new group of enthusiastic young people.

The young people were so enthusiastic to learn about work, explore their options and meet mentors that they completed two days of training in their school holidays , and have been attending group sessions on Wednesday evenings to meet mentors and get to know each other.

Participants have already been out and about on two group activities. One, in nature, tree planting and learning about horticulture – thanks for the support from Parks Victoria on the Bellarine. The other, attending the Geelong Symphony Orchestra performance on a Friday evening – thanks to support from the orchestra and mentors.

Thanks to all the  Equip! mentors for the time and effort they’re contributing to build the confidence and skills of our young people.

Young people have been matched with their mentors and are looking at resumes, and individual career  interests.

If you have work experience or volunteer opportunities that could help our young people gain practical experience, please contact equip@diversitat.org.au, or phone the Equip! team at West Geelong office on 5221 6044.
