Mentoring Programs at UOW Bega
UOW Bega students have the opportunity to be involved in two mentoring programs. Both provide students with experience in mentoring, working in schools and leadership.
AIME provides a dynamic educational program that gives Indigenous high school students the skills, opportunities, belief and confidence to finish school at the same rate as their peers. AIME has proven to dramatically improve the chances of Indigenous kids finishing school. AIME also connects students with post Year 12 opportunities, including further education and employment.
Indigenous high school students in years 9 – 12 from Narooma, Bega, Pambula and Eden attend five AIME Outreach Days over the year at UOW Bega campus where they are also mentored by local university students.
The In2Uni Program is a partnership between the University of Wollongong and Department of Education and Communities (DEC NSW), Illawarra and South East Region to enhance aspirations and capacity of selected primary and secondary schools within our communities.
The University of Wollongong's In2Uni Program aims to build aspirations for higher education and beyond by allowing students to explore possibilities and opportunities at University.
The program offers a range of activities, including academic mentoring, leadership and transition workshops, on-site experiences and online activities for students, parents and teachers in the program.
