Rotaract Mentorship Program 2023

February 8, 2023 @ 1:20 pm - April 5, 2023 @ 3:10 pm

The Rotaract Club of Narrabri are facilitating the 2023 Rotaract Mentorship Program in conjunction with the Narrabri High School and are inviting local business to participate. 

 

The Rotaract Club of Narrabri is a local organisation that empowers students and young professionals to create positive and lasting change in themselves, their local community and around the world. Being a part of a global movement of young leaders who are developing innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges, Rotaract Clubs bring together people ages 18 and older to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service.

 

The Rotaract Club of Narrabri understand the importance of educating and inspiring our young people on what kind of employment and entrepreneurial opportunities exist within the Narrabri region and what it would look like to work in these industries. As part of this initiative, Rotaract have established a mentorship for local students in Year 11 and 12 with the aim to develop and conduct workshops that will provide these opportunities and “on the job experience”.

 

Unlike work experience programs, students are to be paired with a Rotaract member, as well as a business mentor that specialises in their career field of interest. The program will support students with further knowledge, training, and experience when it comes to all aspects of applying for a job than what is currently offered by the schools. This includes CV and cover letter writing, mock interviews, networking, goal setting, communication, and time management skills, and how to conduct themselves during job interviews as well as appropriate behaviour and attitude when working for the employer.

 

The various options for businesses to participate in the program include:

 

    • 20-minute Seminar at Narrabri High School
    • Individual Mentorship at Narrabri High School
    • Business “on the job” Mentorship
    • NIN Business Collective

 

If you are member of the Narrabri Industrial Network (“NIN”) and cannot actively participate in the requirements of the program, you are eligible to be participate as a NIN business collective mentor.

 

This is a voluntary program that will run from the 08/02 – 05/04 on Wednesday afternoons from 1:20pm – 3:10pm, with “on the job experience” only taking place from 22/02 – 22/03 as seen below.
