Volunteers needed to mentor disadvantaged students
THE Smith Family is seeking mentors in the Dubbo area to guide disadvantaged students on making career choices via an online program called itrack.
itrack connects high-school students from Years 9 to 11 with a mentor who can offer support and guidance with their post-school plans.
Over 18 weeks (two school terms), mentors chat with their student one hour per week, via a monitored, secure online chatroom to provide advice and encouragement on work, study and career opportunities.
No specialised skills or experience are required and a three-hour training session is provided. To register, visit thesmithfamily.com.au/itrack
