The Echuca College Teen Mentor Program has been operating at the College for a number of years. The College invites people to be trained to mentor young people. The program has been very successful and many great stories have resulted from the support the mentors give our students.
Activities range from talking, playing games, building to playing sport and provide our students with the additional level of support to ensure our students feel supported. Our wonderful mentors share so much with our students and teach the students life skills and provide them with encouragement to continue with their education.
Our mentors bring a variety of skills into Echuca College and their generosity is overwhelming. Our students are very lucky to be supported by such generous and caring people.
