Through Woolyungah Indigenous Centre's Alumni Mentoring Program, selected Indigenous Alumni are given the opportunity to mentor students in their final year of study. Committing a minimum of 8 hours over an 8-week period, mentoring occurs via phone, email, zoom and in person meetings.
Alumni Mentoring assists workforce readiness after graduation and the program is UOWx accredited so that mentees (students) can be recognised for their time committed.
Speaking to the benefits of networking and work readiness one mentee said “The mentorship program, organised by WIC, allowed me to build networking skills with like-minded individuals, who I will be connected to for the remainder of my career. Their guidance, support and network has increased my level of employability within my chosen field.”
Highlighting the continued benefits of our community supporting each other one of the mentors commented “When I was a young Engineer, I was lucky to have a good mentor who explained it to me that it was their duty to pass on the knowledge to the new generation. Now I have moved on to be a mentor to share the knowledge that he once passed to me.”
