Build Leadership Skills

Campus Connections Aotearoa is a wonderful opportunity for students seeking to build their professional helping, relationship building and communication skills.

You will receive training on youth development, building relationships with young people, how to work with adolescents in a mentoring environment, all while gaining direct experience working with youth.

Gain Real-Life Experience

Campus Connections Aotearoa is unlike any other class you will take at UoA. Student mentors are a part of a dynamic team designed to provide personal, social and academic/career support to young people.

As a participant, you will gain valuable hands-on experience to help foster your professional development and give you a competitive edge when applying for jobs, internships, and further education.

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.
