Professor Zimmerman will describe her work with young people in the youth justice and social service systems and the Campus Corps youth mentoring programme she and her colleagues have developed and implemented. This highly successful evidence-based programme which enables undergraduate students to mentor at-risk youth has gained national and international attention, as it addresses many gaps in the mentoring literature including community support, diversity training, mental health concerns with at-risk youth.

This is an excellent workshop opportunity for people working with young people, who need to add a mentoring dimension to their role.

Comments from previous attendees:

"The workshop is really practical. It taught me how to talk with our mentees more effectively and ask the right questions."

"It gave me really useful activities that we can use with our mentees."

"I really enjoyed sharing korero with workmates and looking at the theory behind how we work with young people."  read more
