Become a student mentor

Mentoring in the Young Achievers Program (YAP) provides an opportunity for university students to work closely with the YAP students throughout Years 11 and 12 and as they transition from school to university. UQ students selected as mentors for this program play an essential role in supporting, motivating and inspiring students to set and achieve their personal and educational goals.

Our Mentors are undergraduate students currently enrolled at UQ from a variety of study areas, geographic regions and backgrounds. What brings them together is a passion for helping others, making a difference, and a dedication to enhancing the Young Achievers Program at UQ.
