High school can be a challenging time for any student. Choosing subjects and making decisions that could have a lasting impact on their future can seem such a daunting task. But for disadvantaged students, it can be especially difficult. Often unable to access others outside of their family who can provide career guidance or advice on choosing suitable subjects to set them on the right track, disadvantaged students are at greater risk of dropping out of school early.
Learning for Life Program Coordinator, Sally, knows firsthand the importance of helping students in need to broaden their horizons. And she’s recently rolled out our mentoring program iTrack, where students in Years 9 to 11 speak online each week with trained volunteer mentors.
