From Academic Enrichment Coordinator, Ms Belinda Buchan
Waverley College is launching a mentoring program in October 2020 – and we’re looking for volunteers who can engage and inspire our young men. If you have an area of expertise that you’d like to share with Academic Enrichment students in Years 7 to 12, we’d love to hear from you.
Who We’re Looking For
We’re hoping to connect Academic Enrichment students with experienced professionals from the academic, corporate and sporting worlds.
Our vision for the mentoring program is to:
- Facilitate positive, ongoing relationships that are rewarding for mentors and mentees
- Go beyond what we learn in class and explore real-world issues
- Build confidence, encourage inquiry and spark interest
How it Works
We’ll match mentors with one to three students according to their preferences and interests. Mentors will meet with their mentee/s for around one hour per week.
A member of College staff will be present during each mentoring session and volunteers will require a NSW Working With Children Check (WWCC) prior to joining the program.
Expressions of Interest
If you’d like to participate, please let us know by Saturday 10 October. Please click here to submit an expression of interest.

Let’s engage the next generation of bright minds!
