Kids Hope Australia


Our training is the backbone to great mentoring. All of our volunteers go through a comprehensive training process. We empower Coordinators to train their Mentors using the ‘train the trainer’ approach. The content generally includes the following key areas… and more!

  • Child development and wellbeing
  • Planning a great mentor hour
  • How to interact, support and bring out the best in mentor children
  • The latest child safe practices and our stringent child protection policy
  • Guidelines for the delivery of non-religious content during mentoring sessions

It is highly advisable for each program to have both a Coordinator and an Assistant Coordinator. This lightens the load for Coordinators making the program more sustainable and also allows for volunteers to distribute tasks into their skill sets.

The coordinator training was very thorough.

Tim encouraged each of us individually as well as jointly.
