"I’ve participated twice now as a Mentor with the Volunteering Victoria Mentoring Program and it continues to be the most rewarding, inspiring and humbling experience – certainly a highlight of my year. I have had the privilege of mentoring some talented individuals who are highly committed to their volunteers, and this has allowed me to grow and develop as a leader and mentor.
The most meaningful part for me is connecting with my mentee on areas beyond the workplace, as we support each other on the challenges of work and life, and I feel blessed for the opportunity to form friendships well after the program.
To those thinking of joining the program, you will be supported by Sara and the Volunteering Victoria team with opportunities for professional development sessions and webinars, and I highly recommend participating in the program as a profound learning and memorable experience that will benefit any volunteer engagement leader." - Jimmy
