“Mentors Matter” Young adults with physical disability mentoring High School students with physical disability.
The Physical Disability Council of NSW received a financial grant from the St George Foundation to conduct a Mentoring Program of limited duration (4 months). ABS statistics on the education of those with a physical disability, show 30% of participants had completed year 12 and only 13% had completed a bachelor degree or higher. This is compared to 49% and 20% for people without a disability. For some high school students with physical disability it can be difficult to: recognise their own attributes and skills; see academic opportunities, and future employment opportunities; and identify people who can be role models.
If you have an interest in participating in this as a student, please click here for additional information, or if you know anyone who would be interested in this please pass the information onto the person (or perhaps a secondary school).
