Description of Resource

With the number of young people from the Horn of Africa entering Australia increasing and the unique set of challenges this population faces as a result of their age, ethnicity, migration and direct/indirect trauma experience, the Australian government is using mentoring as a source of support. This paper aims to assist service providers in managing and providing culturally appropriate programs and recommends key practices and policies to further develop and strengthen services.
