Nominate a Teenage Girl for the SISTER2sister Program
The SISTER2sister youth mentoring program is for teenage girls who have experienced trauma and abuse or come from particularly disadvantaged low socio-economic circumstances.
Please note that our SISTER2sister program is only currently operating in Greater Sydney, NSW. Intake occurs once a year in early February. Applications for both Big Sister mentors and Little Sister mentees for the 2019 Sydney SISTER2sister program are currently open and can be submitted at any time.
The nature of disadvantage and trauma faced by the teenage girls who SISTER2sister aims to support manifests in emotional and behavioural issues such as self-harm (including suicide attempts), depression, anxiety, substance abuse, employment apathy, truancy and social isolation.
