Deloitte Mentors CanTeen’s Young Leaders
Monday, 1st September 2014 at 10:27 am

A mentoring program for youth cancer charity CanTeen’s young leaders has been launched as part of a wider corporate partnership with professional services firm Deloitte.

CanTeen said the mentoring program will provide young people with access to the expertise and experience of Deloitte staff in order to further develop their leadership potential to help them prepare for future careers.

The Not for Profit organisation, CanTeen helps young people deal with the impact cancer has on their life by providing funding for specialist hospital care, counselling and individual assistance as well as information and peer support programs.

“CanTeen is passionate about empowerment and is proud to have young people affected by cancer actively involved at all levels of the organisation providing direction, feedback and advice,” CanTeen CEO Peter Orchard said.

“Having young people heavily represented throughout our governance structure, including holding the majority of seats on the Board of Directors, helps ensure that our services, programs and information effectively meet young people’s needs.

“We’re very excited to be working with our national partner and sponsor Deloitte to deliver the mentoring program and I look forward to seeing Deloitte staff help our young people fulfil their leadership potential.”

Executive Sponsor for Responsible Business at Deloitte and Audit leader, Cindy Hook said the company believes in the importance of leadership in meeting the challenges of the future.

“For our friends and young leaders in CanTeen Australia this means giving them exposure to world class leadership training via a national mentoring program aimed at developing their leadership potential.”

“Every year another 23,000 young people have to face the challenge of cancer – whether it’s their own diagnosis or that of their parent, brother or sister.”
