Staff

Mentors
The mentor is responsible for a home group of young people on a daily basis ranging in ages from 12-18 years of age. Mentors need to have a working understanding of mental health and wellbeing issues that impact on the daily lives of our youth. Respectful and trusting relationships are crucial to the ongoing successful engagement of each young person with their Mentor. The mentor will also be responsible for developing appropriate learning and well-being curriculum that complements each young person’s individual learning plan, strengths and aspirations. It is essential that mentors are flexible within each young person’s timetable to provide the most appropriate and supportive assistance to the needs of each young person on a daily basis. Mentors will have ongoing support from the Co-ordinator, other mentors and case managers.
Case Managers
The case manager will work closely with mentors and the Co-ordinator to support young people to overcome barriers they face in successful engagement at FLO Connect on a daily basis. The case manager will be responsible for referrals to organisations/agencies that assist young people to engage fully in their program that complements the individual learning plan completed by the young person, their family, mentor and case manager. It is essential that the case manager works flexibly within the setting, prioritising the needs of the young people on a daily basis. Respectful and trusting relationships between the young people and case manager are crucial for the ongoing successful engagement and aspirations of each young person at FLO Connect. The case manager will also be responsible for delivering specific programs to young people as the need arises (eg. anger management, self-esteem, anxiety, emotional intelligence, drug and alcohol awareness). Case managers will be co-located in FLO Connect home groups with mentors and young people.
