What we do

Heywood & District Standing Tall has been operating since 2013. For the past 10 years, Standing Tall has been recruiting, screening, and training community volunteers to become effective mentors to our students from Years 7 – 12 at the Heywood and District Secondary College.

Our Vision

Young people fulfilling their potential to live rich and rewarding lives and be valuable members of the community.

Our Mission

To train caring adults in our communities who will support and encourage young students in our school to reach their full potential in education and as individuals of the community.

Our Purpose

Our values are integrity, trust, respect, and shared responsibility. We believe that the benefits of mentoring come from the development of a trusting relationship and all practices of the program are designed to allow this to take place. We seek to deliver a program where all participants are valued.
