Vicki Condon AM - from HR Management to Founder & CEO of Raise Foundation

What a delightful and inspiring guest I have for you today - and an Order of Australia to boot! Vicki Condon worked in human resources management, a job she loved, then took time out to have her three beautiful children. She retrained and began teaching at TAFE Outreach but she had a dream to start a NFP charity to help mentor young people... I will let Vicki tell the rest of her fantastic story. Needless to say and to quote Jack Nicholson from 'As Good As It Gets' (and swap gender) after our chat Vicki made me want to be a better woman - it is life changing what her and the team do.


Twelve years on Raise Foundation has provided mentors for over 6,300 young people and trained more than 4,800 volunteers with mentoring skills to take through life.


Feel good, give back and find purpose. Youth mentoring is a rewarding experience that makes a real difference in the life of a young person.


Raise has in-school mentoring programs around Australia. Sign up to become a mentor today at


If this is something you think you'd like to get involved be quick! Applications close late Feb for VIC & SA and late March for NSW & QLD.
