In2science is looking for volunteer mentors for semester 1 2017
Are you passionate about communicating science, maths, engineering, have completed at least one year of your course, and enjoy working with young people? Then read on!
In2science is looking for enthusiastic students from second year onwards who are studying science, engineering or mathematics and are available to mentor students from economically disadvantaged secondary schools. The tutorial period runs for 10 weeks. This is one of the best ways to make use of your time, give back and inspire young people to consider pursuing STEM subjects in VCE and university.
There are two ways to be a mentor
- in-class mentoring for metropolitan schools
- online mentoring for regional schools
Both of these methods involve a 2-3 hour per week volunteer commitment. In-class mentors can be reimbursed up to $100 for travel costs.
What else is to be gained from this?
- A great qualification and referee for your CV
- Experience in developing and furthering your communication skills
- The chance to inspire the next generation of problem-solvers
- Getting to spread your passion for science, mathematics or engineering
- Training and networking opportunities with mentors from our partner universities, The University of Melbourne, RMIT, and Swinburne.
