RUSH landscape




RUSH Mentoring Service was established in the Hunter Region in 2004 in partnership with In2Life and C3Victory. RUSH works together with the school, student, family and the church to provide support for teenagers at risk, by placing a significant role model in a young person’s life through weekly one on one, out of school volunteer mentoring. RUSH is a welfare based program that works closely with the school welfare department.

Celebrating 10 yearsCelebrating 10 years

In 2014 we are celebrating 10 years as RUSH Mentoring Service and we believe it to be a significant milestone for RUSH; it has stood the test of time succeeding through the generosity of our volunteers and the financial contributions of our personal supporters. Over the course of a decade RUSH has provided one on one mentoring for hundreds of ‘at risk’ young people by providing them and their families with a wider support network.
