Young Women’s Mentoring Group

The Gugan Gulwan Young Women’s Mentoring Group (YWMG) is a tailored program to meet the needs of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women aged 12-15 years in the ACT region.

The program is holistic in design and provides opportunities for the young women to engage in learning life skills, participate in group activities and educational information sessions. Participants in this program develop a deeper understanding of relevant contemporary issues affecting them, the ability to self-advocate and to improve their own personal development/identity in an environment that is safe, free from judgement and culturally sensitive.
