Mentees and mentors meet at school weekly during school terms to work on their projects. The program has mentees from year 9 & 10 students. The programs goal is to encourage and add value to young people by helping them develop essential skills as they work on the project they have selected. Along the way they have interesting sessions that focus on life challenges and resilience.
The program also has excursions such as NSW Parliament tour, University & TAFE tours, cultural exchange sessions and other workshops that exposes participants to diverse learning opportunities.
The mentees feel a sense of accomplishment as they witness the completion of their projects. Through this process they develop teamwork, communication, listening, reflection and organisation skills.
