Mentoring within schools has become an increasingly popular and effective way to bring a caring adult or older peer relationship to the lives of more youth. The school setting provides an opportunity to reach students in an environment that also allows access to educational, recreational, and developmental support to help enhance mentoring relationships. If you feel you may have something to offer we would love to hear from you. Please contact Jenna Foley to discuss options.


Wairakei Primary School is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for students to learn. Volunteering creates a dynamic, diverse network of whānau dedicated to strengthening the foundations of education, youth and community. Please contact Jenna Foley to discuss options to volunteer.
