Young Men’s Mentoring Group

The Gugan Gulwan Young Men’s Mentoring Group is a tailored targeted program for young men aged 8 – 12 years. The delivery of this program is to service an unmet need for support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young men in the ACT region.

As Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young men transition into adolescence they often face additional challenges. Young Men’s Mentoring Group provides strategies and support to help the young men identify and address issues within their own self-identity, family and community.
