Raise Foundation on the hunt for mentors for at-risk youth
Raise Foundation CEO Vicki Condon and ambassador Georgie Gardner have joined Mark Levy in the studio to put out a call for new recruits.
Youth charity Raise Foundation has recorded more than 3500 graduates from nearly 300 school-based programs, undertaking more than 104,000 hours of mentoring.
Ms Condon explained it was the untimely death of a 14-year-old family friend which fueled her decision to leave the world of corporate HR behind.
“I wanted to do something that made a big difference.”
Georgie Gardner has put a famous face and voice to the NSW-based foundation, with the goal of expanding its programs nationally.
The organisation is now on the hunt for new mentors to join the team, with COVID-19 making young people even more vulnerable.
“Adolescence is a really tricky time for so many people,” she said.
“It’s a time where you feel vulnerable, you feel misunderstood, you feel angry with the world.
“To provide a mentor … can potentially be life-changing.”
