Abstract Over recent years there has been a significant increase in the number of young people from the Horn of Africa entering Australia. These young people face unique challenges as a result of their age, ethnicity, migration and direct/indirect trauma experience. Although governments are using mentoring as one source of support to help Horn of African young people, little is known about how to appropriately adapt mentoring programs for this group of young people. Using research with policymakers, mentoring providers and Horn of African young people, this paper aims to help mentoring providers appropriately tailor programs for Horn of African young people.
