Become a Young Warrior Mentee

Are you a young woman 17-25 years living in Sydney who is needing support?

Would you like help to complete further study or to get a job?

Would you like to learn how to earn and manage your own money and become financially independent?

Would you like support with mood management?

Would you like to make new friends?

Would you like to be supported by a caring group of female mentors to help you achieve your goals?

Well, if the answer is yes, we might just have the right program for you!

The Young Warrior Woman Program is designed especially for young women ages 17-25. The program provides connection to a safe group of peers and mentors who are non-judgemental and good listeners. Our mentors are positive female role models from the local community who will provide you with support, guidance, wisdom and will also cheer you on from the sidelines to reach your goals.

We provide a comprehensive six-month life-skills education program which will teach you all of the skills you need for the future. We can also help you to finish studying and/or get a job or go onto higher education so that you can earn your own money and take charge of your life. Therapy sessions will provide you with tips and tools for regulating mood and dealing with any stress and anxiety you may have about going out on your own as an independent Warrior Woman.

This is what a typical Saturday workshop day would look like for you:

  • Inspirational female speaker who has achieved amazing goals and/or have overcome adversity
  • Financial literacy workshop
  • Job readiness workshop
  • Group psychotherapy session support with your peers
  • Life skills education workshop
  • Health and wellness workshop

So, what do you need to do next?

Fill out this application form (link below). Once we have received your application form, we will contact you to set up a time for an interview with members of the Warrior Woman team. This will be very casual and relaxed and will take about 30 minutes either in person or digitally. The purpose of the interview is to get to know you a little better (and vice versa) and walk you through the steps of the program. It is a great opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.
