The MARM is a new innovative mentoring pilot program that aims to support and develop boys and men to be the best version of themselves and become leaders in respect and gender equality in their communities.
Both mentees and mentors will be coached to reflect and build upon on their core values and beliefs that encourage behaviours and actions that promote a community of respect, community safety and connection.
Mentoring is a relationship between two people that aims to guide, support, encourage, and empower a person to achieve positive personal growth and healthy relationships.
Successful mentoring relationships rely on mutual trust, respect, values, empathy, connectedness and healthy boundaries. Mentorships are reflective and forward facing that is goal and growth oriented for both parties.
Frankston City Council has partnered with Whitelion Youth as the lead mentoring agency providing day-to-day support and Jesuit Social Services as the specialist trainer and advisor in healthy masculinities and gender equality.
Both agencies will provide all necessary training and will support participation in a wide range of exciting activities such as boating, fishing, woodworking with Frankston based volunteer agencies.
