Become a Student Mentor

There are mentoring opportunities in all of our Devonport Schools, Primary, High & College. The key to “Mentoring” is relationship and provides the opportunity to significantly impact the life of a young person through positive relationship. The mentoring relationship is a 1 to 1 relationship.

Students who have a Mentor have shown a marked increase in schoolwork and socialising with classmates along with a decrease in disruptive behaviour, and inattention in class. This is a happy situation for all concerned the parent, teacher, class, and most importantly the student. The long-term benefits of this are significant. Think of this in terms of the benefits to our community let alone the fact that young people have the opportunity to leave school with purpose, direction and value to their lives.

You can be a part of this significant community impact! What is the time Commitment? Mentors are required to commit to a minimum of 70 minutes per week over a 12 month period, not including school holidays. However Mentors can do more if they wish.

Become a Learner Driver Mentor

The Easy P’s Learner Driver Mentor program helps students of Devonport, and their families obtain their provisional driver’s license, where they would otherwise have no access to a suitable vehicle or supervisory driver.
