Abstract


  • Mentoring refers to a cultural, natural or professional relationship that results from a person working with peer(s) or an older person(s) to develop their skills within the expectations of a cultural, religious, political, social, academic or professional context. Mentoring can happen at individual, family, group or community level. Often, literature speaks of professional mentoring but other communities identify more with culturally or naturally situated mentoring.

    As with other immigrants, young people from an African background encounter unique social, psychological and economic challenges that could be addressed using culturally informed interventions. While there is a lot of research on youth mentorship in Australia, less is known about mentoring young people from African backgrounds. Therefore, this research was consummated to address this gap in the literature with the ultimate intention of contributing to interventions.
