PATH 4 LIFE | For Mentees
Empowering Pathfinders to reach their full potential
In June 2022, Pathways Melbourne launched the
PATH 4 LIFE | Mentor Program - read the AJN article HERE.
This unique program features three types of fully-trained volunteer Mentors for Pathfinders in need:
Buddy Mentors who have lived experience of questioning and/or moving away from the Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox lifestyle to provide support and guidance.
Professional Mentors who empower individual Pathfinders to reach their full potential in a professional capacity.
Life Skills Mentors who guide individual Pathfinders to reach their full potential in life.

Mentor Applications are currently closed but stay tuned for when we will train more Mentors next year.

Mentor & Mentee Testimonials
"I had no idea that I would benefit so much by having a Pathways Mentor in my life. I was struggling to get myself back on my feet after the end of a bad marriage. I was stuck, lost, and isolated when I put my hand out to Pathways, and they connected me with my amazing mentor. And it was transformational for me and my life moving forward"
- Judy (Mentee - not her real name)
"Assisting others to develop life skills is one of the greatest Mitzvot. Knowing I am supporting a mentee through trauma makes me feel stronger. I can understand another person’s real life and help them to feel they are not alone"
- Mara (Mentor)
