Youth Mentor for 13 y.o. Boy with Disability (Down Syndrome)

YMentoring is a community based support program for young people, operated by YMCA WA. We match volunteers with young people to form one-to-one relationships that take place for 2-3 hours per week. Volunteers spend time with young people in the community over a 12 month period

Getting Involved

We are seeking a volunteer mentor to spend time with Craig, a bright and cheeky 13 year old boy living in the Northern suburbs. Craig has Down Syndrome and as a result has communication difficulties and requires assistance with developing his social skills. A volunteer who is active, enjoys sports and has a patient nature will enjoy spending time with Craig engaging in fun social activities. Craig has an extensive interest in sports such as cricket, basketball and footy and he also enjoys playing board games.

After submitting an application form, all volunteers undergo a thorough screening process before being matched to a young person.
