Successful projects will be announced in September.
Deadly Youth Mentoring Program
The program provides disadvantaged youth from the Maroubra electorate with mentoring and case management to help them create positive futures.
What’s this project about?
The project will support at least 20 youth from the Maroubra electorate and provide each of them with 6 months of intensive mentoring and casework support. The project is an early-intervention program, which identifies youth at-risk of entering the Juvenile Justice system and supports them to engage with education, employment, positive social activities and sports. The program leverages the popularity of the Souths Cares/Rabbitohs brand, to create positive social changes.
The local community will be better off through the following outcomes: 1. Reduction in youth crime and anti-social behaviour, making the community safer and increasing community pride. 2. Young people will be more connected with their community through positive social activities and sports. 3. The community as a whole will benefit from developing their future leaders and positive role models for other youth to aspire to.
The project will be carried out by mentors at Souths Cares. Souths Cares is the charity organisation affiliated with the South Sydney Rabbitohs Football Club, which has a strong following in the Maroubra State Electorate. The project will work closely with local high schools, primary schools, Police and youth services to identify young people at-risk. The project will run for 12 months from 1st January 2020 to 31 December 2020.
