Shoalhaven Young Professional Mentor Program Journey's

Lucy and Toby Carter participated in the Shoalhaven Young Professional Mentor Program as mentoree’s - Toby in 2017 and Lucy 2018.

The program allowed them to meet new people and make friends. This opened up employment opportunities and led to them both growing in confidence as young professionals.

The mentoring sessions were particularly helpful, as it gave one - one time to focus on personal development.

Toby was matched with mentor Phil Guy a Building Consultant and Lucy, Allan Shackleton from NAB.

The workshops helped them to get to know the other mentoree’s, with the public speaking session being one of the most daunting and rewarding segments of the program.
