MyRoad

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 in the classroom!

Industry Mentors guide students through a series of structured learning modules, supporting the development of key skills required to support successful post school transitions.

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 success Beacon has secured further funding from Coca Cola to continue MyRoad’s rollout and development in 2017. Bookings will reopen soon for Semester 3 2017.

“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…”
