Last Tuesday, twenty students who worked on the Golden Key Mentoring programme, presented their projects at the University of Canterbury.
This was the culmination of a mentoring programme centred around community engagement and capacity building. Mentors and mentees met once a week over a five week period to prepare a presentation on a topic that piqued their interest. The aim was to create groups based on students' interests and mentors' specialisations. During the sixth and final week a presentation was held for peers, teachers and parents. Mentees thoroughly enjoyed the "university experience" - being able to present their projects in the Haere Roa building on the University of Canterbury campus.
