Become a Wise Warrior Mentor

The Young Warrior Woman Program supports vulnerable young women 15-25 years of age transitioning from out of home care into independent living, as well as young women who simply lack the support of a stable caring adult to guide them on their path to adulthood. It is designed to reduce the stress involved in leaving out of home care and/or learning to live independently. We call our mentees Young Warriors.

Each Young Warrior is supported by a group of mentors who we call Wise Warriors. These are caring, positive, and stable female role models from the local community who provide support, guidance and impart the wisdom of life experience.

Our ideal mentors are:

  • Women 30 years of age and over (wisdom comes with age, so we encourage mentors of all ages over 30)
  • A stable role model with a passion for advancing young vulnerable women in the Australian community
  • Willing to spend time with their mentor for an hour a week in person or digitally
  • Willing to embrace our mentoring philosophy and strategy, share our values, and work in line with our policies and procedures
  • Willing to undergo our training program and embrace ongoing training as provided
  • Willing to ask for help from the Warrior Woman team when needed
  • A good listener
  • Non-judgemental
  • Committed to attend all sessions of the program
