About Click-on Mentoring
Why volunteer as a Click-on Mentor
Who we need
- Share with the students their high school experience and their own journey to university
- Give our students an opportunity to talk about their aspirations and how to achieve them
- Offer a glimpse into university life: adapting to a new environment, studying on campus, subject choices and what a typical uni day looks like
- Help students increase their skills in using the internet and different types of technology
- Be a role model and build student confidence in their academic potential.
You can make a difference!
About our students
- Many students rarely leave their local environment or community, so their life experience is very limited
- Students may not have anyone in their family who has been to university and may not even know anyone who has gone on to higher education
- Long-term unemployment in their families or community and the lack of role models can crush confidence and any sense of hope or aspiration for a different future
- Students and their families often believe ‘people like us’ don’t go to university.
What does Click-on Mentoring involve?
- Join six, one-hour online sessions (these will be conducted during school hours)
- Attend two face-to-face events at the beginning and end of the program to meet the high school student
- Complete short, online surveys and participate in a focus study group so we can ask you for your feedback in how we can improve the program.
