The Old Melburnians Mentoring Program has two principal objectives:
- To enable younger Old Melburnians (under 30 years of age) to further their careers by participating as a mentee and gaining from the exposure to a mentor in a relevant field; and
- To provide an opportunity for suitable Old Melburnians to obtain experience as a mentor, and to make real contributions to the career planning of a young Old Melburnian.
The program is targeted at younger Old Melburnians who have completed undergraduate studies and are in their first or second career role. It is not directed at tertiary students seeking graduate employment.
