Are you looking to volunteer in the Youth Support space? We are currently looking for live-in mentors in the inner North for our Lead Tenant program. If you are looking to become a positive, supportive role model for young people who would benefit from extra support, then a live-in mentor position may be right for you. Read more about this volunteer role.
The Lead Tenant program is a supported accommodation program that is part of the Community Integration Accommodation and Options (CIAO) team at MCM.
The aim of the service is to provide young people, aged 16-18 years old who are unable to live with family or friends, the opportunity to develop essential independent living skills in a safe, stable and supported environment.
The Lead Tenent is a live-in volunteer who resides in a household with young people who may present with challenging behaviours and complex issues. It is not a paid position. The opportunity to contribute to a young person’s life make the role of Lead Tenant appealing and rewarding. It is important that prospective Lead Tenants be motivated by the desire to work with young people rather than, primarily, by access to subsidised housing.
It was heart-warming to see the young person grow and thrive in a program that allowed both of us to learn from each other while having a blast.
