Linked-In Mentoring Program
The Linked-In Mentoring Program is a school based mentoring initiative run in partnership between Inner West Council, TAFE and Sydney Secondary College (Leichhardt and Balmain).
The program involves a series of activities designed to bring together and engage young people to be guided and supported by mentors in a group setting.
Mentor Recruitment Process
Applicants undergo a selection process that includes completing a registration form, participating in an interview, reference checks, and Working With Children Check clearances.
Successful applicants participate in mentor training delivered by TAFE. Upon completion, participants receive a Statement of Attainment. This training will assist people to work effectively in the role of a mentor in a volunteer capacity.
Please find the Linked-In Mentor Online Registration Form here.
