MyRoad Mentoring Program

myroad-logo-originalMyRoad is an innovative online mentoring program for female students. 

MyRoad connects female students aged 16 to 19 (or turning 16 that year) to industry mentors via video chat technology into classrooms anywhere across Australia!

During the two-hour MyRoad session, industry mentors via Zoom video technology (similar to Skype) guide students through a series of structured learning modules, supporting the development of key skills required to support successful post school transitions.

MyRoad 2017/18 is exclusive to young women in their senior years of secondary college (Years 10 to 12). Through exposure to work-related learning and authentic interactions with industry role models, MyRoad provides young women with increased self-confidence and the motivation to develop new hopes, plans and expectations for their future.

Beacon’s MyRoad pilot in 2016 was very successful  – 938 students participated in the 51 programs that were delivered in 35 schools across the nation, involving 118 industry mentors from 27 companies! Following the pilot’s success, Beacon has secured further funding from Coca Cola to continue MyRoad’s rollout and enhancement in 2017/18.

Bookings are open now for MyRoad sessions between 1 August 2017 (Term 3) and mid-April 2018 (end of Term 1).

To EXPRESS INTEREST in mentoring, please go to our MENTOR INFORMATION page.
To request a MyRoad session for your school, BOOK NOW on our SCHOOL INFORMATION page.

Please note that key aspects of the MyRoad program, including session delivery on the day, will require the use of Zoom technology (similar to Skype). For those not familiar with Zoom, please see our FAQs.

“The experience of mentoring these young girls, who genuinely need guidance and support to define their future, was very refreshing and actually invigorating for me…. I found it rewarding that students are searching for guidance from someone like me, who was in a similar situation some years back…”
