Make a Difference
As a member of Campus Connections Aotearoa, you will serve as a positive and supportive role model to our youth participants, have the opportunity to create change and make a real difference in the young people’s life.
Students often build strong bonds with the youth throughout the Campus Connections Aotearoa programme. These bonds can be beneficial to students and youth alike and help to create a lasting and memorable experience.
It makes me feel good to be a mentor. It gives me a sense of fulfilment where I am able to work with my mentee. Giving back to the community through youth is a great feeling.
I really enjoyed the positive environment that Campus Connections Aotearoa provided … It also gave me a lot of different opportunities to grow, especially in my communication and interpersonal skills.
