HOW DOES IT WORK?
AIEF Scholarship Students are matched with an AIEF Mentor at the beginning of Year 10. All AIEF Mentors undertake a rigorous screening process and participate in training before meeting their students at an induction session organised by AIEF.
Pairs meet at school monthly and take part in group activities with other mentors and students twice a year. Mentors support students by listening, providing advice and guidance, and by acting as a sounding board for ideas and problems.
Over time, mentors and students build rapport and trust, and mentors can become an important part of a student’s support network. Mentors and students are encouraged to view their relationship as one that will last long after graduation, and AIEF is proud to support many pairs who see themselves as friends for life.
