If you're passionate about social change and education, Mosaic Mentoring is the perfect program for you!
Volunteers undertake a one day training session and a planning day in preparation for the Forum Day.
On Forum Day, held at UNSW, volunteers act as mentors for high school students, running group workshop activities, discussions, games, and a campus tour.
After Forum Day, volunteers continue to visit the high schools in groups and work with students to collaborate in creating a range of major works based on the discussion of ideas at Forum Day.
The program culminates in the Expo night, a multimedia launch of major works and a celebration of the achievements throughout the year.
As a volunteer you develop and refine your communication, teamwork and mentoring skills.
Volunteering with Mosaic Mentoring is also recognised on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).
