ASPIRE Click-on Mentoring Program

ASPIRE Click-on Mentoring Program

Click-on Mentoring is a unique program to help regional high school students be more proactive about planning their future before they leave school. Students join in a series of online discussions with current UNSW student volunteers to gain a greater understanding of university education and the benefits it can bring.

Responsibilities

The students ASPIRE works with come from disadvantaged communities, and while academically talented, they don’t have access to all the information, support and opportunities they need to find out about studying at university.The mentors will share their experience about transitioning from high school to university. Additionally, the mentors will learn about the barriers faced by students in low social economic status communities and act as advocates to achieve a just society.
