People Encouraging and Nurturing Students (PENS)

PENS is a mentoring program for primary school students held at their school. The aim of the program is to support students who are going through a difficult time and would benefit from the undivided attention of an encouraging adult. The mentor/buddy meets with their allocated student for one hour on a weekly basis and spend the time doing some fun activities or just simply having a chat over a cup of hot chocolate. The role of the mentor is to come alongside their student and walk with them on their journey, encouraging them and cheering them along on the way. This can have a lasting positive impact on a child’s life and is also very rewarding for the mentor.
Please call Peninsula Christian Care if you would like to find out more on becoming a PENS mentor.
