Student Mentoring

Some mentoring programs for you if your are a student

Kaleidoscope Initiative believes that newcomer students will be best served by the mentoring program designed especially for students.  If you are a student, you may be able to join these mentoring programs depending on their eligibility criteria and other factors.

At the same time, we encourage you to apply to become our Kaleidoscope Mentoring Program mentee if you fulfil our KMP Mentee eligibility criteria.

University Mentoring Programs

Curtin University students

Curtin University’s Next Step Mentoring Program matches penultimate and final year Curtin students with industry mentors, including Curtin Alumni, staff and friends, currently working in an industry similar to the student’s field of study or area of interest.

Edith Cowan University students

Edith Cowan University’s ECU Alumni Mentoring Program provides opportunities for former ECU students to share their wealth of professional experience with the current second, third or fourth-year students helping in the transition from university to paid employment.  The mentor will provide opportunities to explore your career options, develop professional networks, increase your employability and give you a rare insight into your chosen industry.

Murdoch University students

Murdoch Student Emerging Leaders is a joint initiative between Murdoch University’s Careers and Employment Centre and Murdoch Guild to provide leadership development opportunities and support the local community.  MSEL is focused on helping students expand their capabilities and reach their potential while empowering them to deliver high calibre projects for community organisations.

University of Western Australia students

University of Western Australia’s Career Mentor Link matches professionals with students providing an opportunity for students to benefit from the industry knowledge and career experience of their mentors.

UWA students can also apply for an internship program through the McCusker Centre for Citizenship. The McCusker Centre for Citizenship partners with more than 300 not-for-profit, community, government and non-government organisations to deliver the program.

Over 2,000 students have undertaken internships through the McCusker Centre for Citizenship, with over 222,000 hours of community services contributed across the Centre’s programs. Feedback on the internship program is overwhelmingly positive, with 97% of past students and supervisors agreeing they would recommend the program to others.
