Describe a typical days work at the Foundation:
A typical day's work for me involves a couple of hours at Banksia Hill Detention Centre visiting clients. Assisting the young men in completing Supervised Release Orders that requires visiting their Youth Justice Officer and also may include drug and alcohol testing, drug rehab, counselling and working with extended families. As part of their Release Order, we help them to reengage in school, training, education, employment, and community sport.
Favourite part of being a mentor: As a team, any success we have no matter how big or small it may be.
Personal inspiration: My family.
