MyRoad 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).
