FREE Community Leadership and Mentoring Program

The Bywong and Wamboin Community Resilience Program will be running a FREE community leadership and mentoring program to support people that are interested in helping out in their community (but maybe weren’t sure how) and those currently volunteering and looking to learn new skills.

Volunteering can make a difference in your life and the lives of others. Our region is home to a broad range of groups led by dedicated volunteers and this program will help you understand the opportunities available in your community, take the mystery away from what volunteering involves, show how you can use your skills to participate, and teach you new skills that would support volunteering and/or your work or study!

The leadership and mentoring program is open to Bywong and Wamboin residents including those who are new to the region. We want to help you and our community to build capacity and resilience. While the program is currently being finalised, it will include facilitated small group discussions and mentoring to

  • build confidence

  • develop practical strategies for working in, communicating with and managing a group

  • understand administrative elements of not-for-profit organisations.

Tailored skills development will also focus on coaching and support for people who would like to become Greenway walk organisers and/or FireWise conveners

¾ roles and responsibilities

¾ the administrative and procedural elements of these roles (user friendly ‘tip sheets’)

¾ development of conversational podcasts with current walk leaders and FireWise convenors to assist participants and the wider community.

Opportunities to join

We would like to hear your ideas and registering your interest would support us in finalising the program. Delivery will be flexible with events proposed for September 2022 and February 2023. You can register at or via an email to
