About the role
Women and Mentoring – WAM Limited (WAM) is an early intervention, community–based crime prevention program for adult women who are being charged, or are likely to be charged, with a criminal offence. Our aim is to reduce female incarceration and recidivism, and to promote women’s social inclusion.
The program aims to support women at their own pace by providing a trusted mentoring relationship with a community volunteer. This relationship encourages self-determination and self-advocacy to assist women to meet their social and legal goals.
Participants are referred to the program from various sources including Victoria Police, Corrections, Court Services, legal services and community organisations. Women may also self-refer. Mentors are trained and resourced to provide appropriate support to the program participants.
Our values are integrity, respect, belonging, empowerment, and social justice.
We are currently looking for volunteer mentors in the City of Hume. Due to the nature of the mentoring relationship we are accepting female volunteers only.
