Peer Mentoring Guides

Peer Mentors are usually parents who volunteer at family resource programs/centres and share their knowledge and experience with others. They help other parents connect with community resources and build support networks. They may also help the program/centre find new families to participate at the centre.

Peer Mentors in the family support sector sometimes have other titles, such as Volunteer Mentor, Parent Mentor or Parent Ambassador.

The twin Peer Mentoring Guides are resources that outline the principles and guidelines for coordinating Peer Mentoring activities in the family support sector.

The Peer Mentoring Guide for family support practitioners outlines the principles and guidelines for coordinating Peer Mentoring activities in the family support sector.
