Big Brothers Big Sisters
The YWCA of Adelaide’s Big Brothers Big Sisters program provides early intervention for disadvantaged young people under 18 who lack adult support and involvement in their lives. The Big Brothers Big Sisters program develops self esteem, confidence and social relationships through mentoring.
Connect-4 targets disadvantaged children and young people (aged 7-17) who live in the north western region of metropolitan Adelaide (City of Port Adelaide Enfield, City of Tea Tree Gully, and the City of Salisbury area) and who are on our Big Brothers Big Sisters waiting list, who respond positively to group settings. Connect-4 provides these young people ('Crew') with the opportunity to participate in group activities (with an outdoors and adventure focus) in the company and support of positive adult volunteer / role model ('Captain').
Go Girls! is an eight–session group program for girls aged 12-14 designed to encourage physical activity, healthy eating choices, and the development of a positive self-image. Go Girls! is facilitated by female volunteer mentors and provides girls with the information and support they need to make informed choice about healthy and active living during a particularly challenging stage of development.
