One in four female students believe boys will have more career opportunities after leaving school
Many young women may not understand or know about the career options available – or have the confidence to chase them.
Research shows that having a mentor can be a game changer. Young women with a mentor or role model say that mentoring can positively influence their career path.
The MyRoad online career mentoring program empowers young women and prepares them to make decisions about their future.
Trained volunteers from diverse industries and backgrounds increase the career awareness of young women. Regardless of your school or community organisation’s location across Australia, MyRoad can bring career mentors and young people together.
What is MyRoad?
In a single 2-hour videoconference, a fully trained volunteer mentor guides young women through 6 structured modules, all in an online setting. Modules are aligned to the Australian Curriculum for General Capabilities and Work Studies.
