Big Buddy Mentoring Trust

The Big Buddy Mentoring Trust finds kind-hearted mentors or ‘Big Buddies’ to partner with fatherless boys or ‘Little Buddies’ aged seven to 14, to help the boys become well-rounded men through positive male role modelling.

The Trust received $1,449 to buy chairs for its volunteer training sessions, which provide the adults with the skills required to mentor their buddies.

The programme gives the boys a man of good character to trust and spend quality time with, improving their confidence, overall happiness and willingness to go outside their comfort zones and try new things.
