Project Details

This project seeks to address a gap in common understanding about which mentoring models (and components of models) work best with CMY’s Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) client base. The evaluation examines and compares the impact of three specifically tailored Mentoring models. One targets young people within the Pasifika community. Two others, one a school-based peer-to-peer initiative and the other linked to an existing out-of-school Homework Club, primarily target African young people. It is anticipated that learnings and insights drawn from the overall project will inform future CMY programming; and enable the organization to consolidate and document its expertise (and that of its partners), and promote its findings within the education sector.
