RUSH Mentoring Services has been operating from C3 Church Victory since September 2004. It is a youth-focused organisation that seeks to encourage and empower youth from a range of backgrounds & circumstances. RUSH Mentoring Services works together with the school, student, family and community to provide a tangible support for teenagers at risk, by placing a significant role model in a young person’s life. RUSH is a welfare based program that works closely with the school welfare department.
2013 RUSH programs
RUSH has supported 15 ‘at risk‘ young people and their families referred by 5 Hunter High Schools for mentoring.
These young people have been seen weekly by their mentors and in addition, each term they attend a mentor and mentee outing that has included ten pin bowling, laser tag and a horse riding camp to Riverwood Downs.
Each term at Cardiff High, RUSH has run ‘Positive Girls‘ a 10 week self-esteem program for 16 young girls where they learn to set goals and take pride in themselves and their surroundings
In Term 3, RUSH ran an 8 week ASPIRE Leadership workshop for 60 students at Waratah High
RUSH has recently completed running “Your Dream” Seminars in 7 High Schools in Newcastle and Port Stephens for 2000 students. These seminars seek to inspire students to believe in themselves and their dreams.
RUSH provides all these services free of charge to schools and thus we are entirely dependent on the generosity of our sponsors. RUSH holds one fundraiser each year, an Annual Auction.
You are invited to this fundraiser – please RSVP NOW by emailing email@example.com
