MENtoring

Teaming Boys to the Bush MENtors with boys early in their lives improves life outcomes and helps boys to become good men.

Mentoring Overview

BttB offers a variety of MENtoring Programs to assist Disengaged, Disadvantaged and/or “At-Risk” Youth. Our programs are tailored for the individual or small group.

The key component to all our programs is our ability to have the youth engage with us. Once we establish a positive rapport, we link the participant with their community. When the youth are connected to their community, they are more likely to make positive decisions and increase their resilience. Every program is built around the boys individual needs and mutually identified goals. Each session is reported on in relation to the identified goals.

Types of Programs:

  • 1 : 1 MENtoring
