About the Role

Help a young person in need to succeed. Share your firsthand industry knowledge and how to gain work experience. Connect students with a wider network of professional contacts. Make a real difference.

Studying at TAFE or University has traditionally been seen as a reliable pathway to a good career, but now with uncertainty in the job market and an increasing number of graduates, the certainty of this pathway appears to be eroding. This is particularly challenging for students who don’t have access to adults who have studied at this level to provide advice. Many students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds are the first in their family to go on to tertiary studies. For these students, mentoring provides the encouragement they need to build aspirations for their future and create networks to assist them make a successful transition from study to work.

Our Career Mentoring students come from financially disadvantaged backgrounds and often lack professional contacts working in their field of interest. A career mentor already working in the field can share firsthand knowledge about the industry and how to gain work experience and, in some cases, can even connect students with a wider network of professional contacts.

This student is studying archaeology/geology/geophysics and we are looking for a volunteer who is currently working in this field.

In order to facilitate the volunteer and student matches, please email us your resume.
