May 4, 2021

Good News! The SSSI National YP Mentoring Program is back!!!

Welcome to our new season of mentoring – applications are now open for the 2021 SSSI National YP Mentoring Program! Want to be part of this innovative and exciting program? Well now is your chance to participate as either a mentor or mentee.  

What is mentoring?
Mentoring is the opportunity to learn from someone who has a wider and broader experience than you (for the mentee) and to share learnings, reflections, guidance and accumulated wisdom (for the mentor). Mentoring is a two-way process, as the mentee often shares a new perspective to the mentor, and the mentor often learns more about themselves through the process. It’s a win-win!

What is required from me?
This year, Mentors and Mentees choose six (6) topics (out of a possible 30 topics) to explore, discuss and document in their Mentoring Journals.  You will need to be able to commit at least 10 hours over the course of the three (3) months of the program to effectively participate in this program.

Sounds awesome – how do I apply?
To help us get to know more about you and to match you with your mentee or mentor, this year you will need to complete an online application form.  Just click on the relevant form below, complete and submit. It's that easy! 

  • Mentor Application Form 
    (Please note: mentors are required to upload a 3-page CV as part of the application process)
  • Mentee Application Form
    (Please note: mentees are required to submit a Reference Letter from a teacher, lecturer, colleague or manager as part of the application process. A Reference Letter template can be found here

Mentor and Mentee Application forms need to be completed and submitted by 5pm AEST on Monday 24 May 2021.

How will I know if I am selected to participate?
Mentors and Mentees will be selected and united by the end of June 2021.

I’m in! But… I still have a few questions
