Bellarine Schools Ministry (BSM) is a combined ministry of the Churches of the Bellarine, consisting of 2 Co-Ordinators and over 20 volunteer mentors. BSM is involved in running youth mentor programs within Bellarine Secondary College including breakfast clubs, a mentoring program and other programs (eg. surfboard shaping, bike shed).
The vision of BSM is to provide support to young people in high schools by coming alongside of them and loving them in practical mentor relationships that show them their intrinsic value.
Ultimately BSM would like to see our mentor programs being available to all youth on the Bellarine through access to more schools where allowable. These programs are invaluable, and help youth navigate the challenges they face, at a pivotal point in their lives when they may not have access to such guidance outside of school.
