School Mentor Program
One of the ways secondary students living with a disability can grow their skills and confidence is by working with a mentor. Our School Mentor Program pairs Peer Mentors with students so they can explore pathways and post-school opportunities together.
These mentors are also young people who live with disability and have a deep commitment to improving the life chances of young people living with disability. It is their role to bring their lived experience and knowledge to guide, connect and inspire the next generation of young people.
Supported by the EYDN team, Peer Mentors are responsible for co-designing the content of the group mentoring sessions, delivering these workshops across South Australian schools, and building strong relationships with their mentees.
Our School Mentor Program is its beginning stages and will be delivered in SA schools soon. We look forward to sharing all the updates and news of its success soon!
In the meantime if you’re interested in becoming a Mentor or you think your school would like to be involved email Sarah to find out more.
