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
