Mentors Visit - March 034.JPG




Build confidence, develop your leadership and communication skills and further expand your network.


Develop a meaningful connection with a rural student as you inspire and empower them to reach their goals.


Develop a sense of belonging and friendships with fellow, like-minded mentors.

We are always looking to recruit open-minded, compassionate and approachable mentors to join our program. If you are interested, please complete an application form and we will be in touch.

How it works

Mentors are paired with a student from one of our participating schools. You are able to stay with the same mentee in order to build rapport and  watch them grow through their teenage years. You will have contact with your mentee at least once a week via email. Whilst emailing is the only requirement of the program, other types of contact are allowed and encouraged, with parent permission, provided you feel comfortable with the arrangement.

What you will get out of it

  • Opportunity to engage with students and their families from the local community

  • Opportunity to explore the Wheatbelt and experience the country lifestyle

  • Ability to broaden your mindset and gain experience with mentoring and volunteering

  • Personally make a difference to a young person's life and watch them grow and mature

  • A low time commitment, simple, online, flexible, and cost neutral experience

  • Friendships with fellow mentors through social activities

  • Online training and 24/7 support from our fabulous WBYM team

  • Career enrichment through references, letters of support, and additions to your CV
