Mentoring

The mission statement of the mentoring program is to build confidence in the development of personal and career goals in the Year 11 students at Glenwood High School.

The main aims are to:

  • Make the classroom more meaningful to students by connecting learning to real life applications by creating opportunities for learning beyond the classroom.
  • Provide mentoring opportunities for your people that have a positive impact upon the confidence, self-esteem, career direction and motivation of participants.
  • Expand the awareness of linkages between education and career opportunities in order to improve participants' employability, career  development and life skills.

The mentoring program aims to build partnerships between local businesses, community groups and individual community members and Glenwood High School by bringing people with experience in life, education and business together with our chosen young participants.

The mentors are sourced from the community and are individuals engaged in a variety of businesses, employment or voluntary activities which are matched to the expressed areas of interests of the mentees.
