COMPACT Inc is a child safe organisation and has extensive experience in delivering and facilitating industry and community mentor programs to provide young people with a range of meaningful learning opportunities.
Evidence shows that bringing a young person together with a mentor can: improve school completion rates, lower dropout rates, build healthier relationships and lifestyle choices, improve attitudes toward learning, increase aspirations in both education and career, enhance self-esteem and self-confidence, improve poor behaviours and improve interpersonal skills.
Our professional staff provide mentor training and support services, and ensure Working with Children Checks are in place prior to mentors working directly with young people.
Mentor programs can be focused on leadership skills and community project management, career development, coaching, experience and personal development and aspiration.
Volunteering programs can provide work and Employability Skills for young people, while building community networks and interest. COMPACT Inc can bring schools together to work with local community organisations to develop and coordinate volunteer programs for young people.
