Vicki Condon AM

CEO and founder, Raise Foundation

Vicki is an exceptional woman who was recently awarded a Member (AM) of the Order of Australia (General Division). Vicki started Raise Foundation 10 years ago with a mission to impact youth wellbeing and engagement through early intervention mentoring programs in schools and communities. Raise Foundation has provided a trained mentor for more than 5,400 young Australians, and have trained more than 4,000 volunteers from the community to be youth mentors. Research shows that quality mentoring greatly increases a young person’s confidence and self-respect.

For teenagers, mentoring greatly reduces the risk of mental health issues, drug and alcohol addiction, teenage pregnancy, juvenile justice issues, homelessness, and poverty in later life.
