iTrack participant Teigan with sisters Tenile and Tamara
Then Teigan took part in our online mentoring program iTrack. Through iTrack students in Years 9 to 11 are matched with trained adult mentors who offer guidance about study options and career paths. Teigan loved that her mentor genuinely cared about her future, and it gave her a fresh perspective.
“We talked it over – talking about the paths that you can take, how getting into university straight away isn't the be all and end all,” said Teigan.
“From there we made a game plan about where I wanted to be in five years; what I wanted to be doing in 20 years … I gained an incredible amount of confidence in myself and in the way that I could work for my future, my way. That was really good. It was a very critical point in my life, I think.”
