Westside Rise Has Launched!

We at COACH Network are really excited to announce our founding role in the Westside Rise mentoring initiative. Together with our partners Big Brother Big Sister Australia and Charis Mentoring we will be working with local communities across the Western Suburbs of Melbourne to see young people and families supported and strengthened. 
The communities of the Western Suburbs have unique and significant strengths, and at the same time are conscious of the disadvantage they want to see addressed effectively. Our model is to equip and mobilise local people to support and empower other local people who are doing life tough – with a vision for long term, generational transformation. 
We are so excited to announce that Werribee Baptist Church are leading the way in this through their engagement as our hub partner on the ground, with their leadership team and community members already at work recruiting and training mentors and building referral partnerships. This is COACH mentoring at its best – partnership, empowerment, and local transformation.

 If you’re in the West and keen to get involved in this groundbreaking new initiative don’t hesitate to get in touch!
