Become a Wise Warrior Mentor

The Warrior Woman Foundation provides holistic evidence-based support programs for under-represented vulnerable young Australian women. Our flagship program, the Young Warrior Woman Program is a mentoring and psycho-educational program which provides connection, life skills education, and mental health support to young women ages 17-25. Based on the Self Determination Theory, the Young Warrior Woman Program is designed to foster autonomy and financial independence.

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.
