The majority of young people will have an average of 15-20 jobs in their lifetime. Our young people have amazing skills, abilities and ideas however they may struggle to match these to career pathways. By providing these students with direct real world experience we provide them with a clearer picture of work. This helps them recognise the choices they have in life, increases their employability skills and helps them to make decisions about their future career.
We are developing the inaugural Career Mentor Partnership in conjunction with Narrabeen Sports High and RAISE foundation to offer Year 11 students connect with mentors from the local community and world of work. The role of a mentor is invaluable to develop and engage students. Mentoring brings together people who have experienced life, education and business (mentors) with students (mentees). Mentors will journey with their mentee as they experience the ups and downs of their preliminary HSC year in Year 11. We are currently recruiting for volunteer mentors who can commit to commit 1-2 hours a month from February to October 2014 to take part in this amazing and rewarding journey with these students.
