Career mentoring program for youth in rural, regional and remote Queensland.

Students in Year 11 and 12 from schools in rural, regional and remote areas of Queensland were given the opportunity to engage with volunteer mentors through Beacon Foundation MyRoad Pilot Project. The participants benefit by gaining a greater understanding of careers and pathways available and the linkage between education and employment, helping them to build aspiration and prepare for a future beyond school.
