Everyone needs GREAT MATES so Arc is introducing a new buddy program called GREAT MATES. 

GREAT MATES will pair experienced students with less experienced students to offer guidance, support and most importantly friendship. Senior students will be given training and Arc will offer plenty of help in starting conversations, creating events and hanging out. We expect the time commitment would be less than 1 hour a week.

The program is particularly aimed at supporting international students coming or returning to Australia., but everyone is welcome.

How it works

  1. Sign up!
  2. We will get you connected (WK8)
  3. Seniors attending training (WK9)
  4. Stay in touch via email, video and group games
  5. Kick off event (WK1, T3)

Registration is essential. So sign up and start making great mates.
