Mentors Required: Families, Junior Members, Seniors and Masters to support new CALD Members 

Surf Life Saving Australia are looking for Mentors to work with the “Ride the Waves” Program for the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Population.

Young People partaking in the Program will be linked to Surf Life Saving Clubs and this will provide Semaphore with an additional 25 members or more as we re-open in October 2018.  There is a meet and greet day on Saturday 25 February 2018 at Henley Beach Surf Club.  The club receives $100 for every mentor that we are able to provide so please if you can support a child, family or adult to feel at home in our club.

The Program is designed for new Australians, migrants and refugees, we’re keen to attract families but there’s no restriction with exception to a minimum age of 13.  We will make allowance to the age criteria if a family seeks to participate and they have one or two siblings just under the age bracket. Due to this it would be great if we could get a few Junior Families to attend as a family so that the new members could be included in social events as well as club events.  This will allow participants to connect with their peers and adults can take the parents under their wing.  It would also be great to have a few senior members to link in with the older teenagers and adults who attend.  It would be great to try and have 10 people attend the meet and greet.

Please register your interest with instructor@semaphoreslsc.com.au and identify if you can attend the session on Saturday 25 February and if you have a current Department Communities and Social Inclusion Check and Child Safe Environments Training.

Thanks in advance,

Jennie
