Indigenous Mentoring Programs

Indigenous Mentoring Programs

Indigenous Mentoring Programs are designed to help you get the most out of your education – at high school, TAFE or uni – or to open up opportunities through networking and experiences.

Mentors could help you achieve all that and more by working on building your confidence, inspiring and motivating you, supporting you and believing in your abilities.
