What is a mentor?
A Mentor is someone who guides and supports you. The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder has over 40 mentors onboard! They are ready to offer advice on careers and life skills and all have joined to invest in their community by helping those who are younger. These mentors live and work here in Kalgoorlie-Boulder across a range of industries. There are engineers, firefighters, reporters, managers and CEO's to name a few.
Why be mentored?
Having a mentor is a chance to talk with someone more experienced about your goals, what you want to do after school, and get life tips. They will share their work and life experience with you to help you better understand the world around you.
In the breakfast sessions, you will discuss with mentors:
- Goal setting and achievement
- Moving out of home/getting a job
- Taking up study/starting a business
- Community/relationships and networks
- Life in Kalgoorlie-Boulder/ Life outside
- Definitions of success
The mentoring sessions will be happening on these dates:
