In October 2013, Minister Victor Dominello announced expressions of interest for non-government organisations to deliver the new NSW Government Youth Mentoring Pilot Program. The program was delivered in early 2014 by YWCA NSW, targeting 512 young people in more than 28 locations over 20 weeks throughout NSW. Young people were mentored using a combination of one-on-one and group mentoring in both community and school settings, by over 214 adult volunteers as mentors.
The youth mentoring pilot was independently evaluated to inform a state-wide rollout of the NSW Youth Mentoring Program throughout NSW in 2015.
