Be a Mentor or Coach
BlueGlobe - Peer Mentoring
BlueGlobe Peer Mentoring provides JMSS Alumni with an opportunity to volunteer at John Monash Science School. The program takes inspiration from Sir John Monash's view that you should “equip yourself for life, not solely for your own benefit but for the benefit of the whole community.”
Working alongside supervising teachers, peer mentors will act as role models for our students. By providing valuable support in the form of content knowledge, technical knowledge and skill, peer mentors will help our students engage with their learning.
In order for John Monash Science School to consider your application to be a Peer Mentor you will need to fulfil the following requirements:
- You are student enrolled in a course at Monash University.
- You must be successfully completing all of your subjects.
- You are over 18 or have parental permission to volunteer.
- You must be available to attend the Information and Peer Mentor Training and Curriculum Briefing Sessions.

If you currently do not fulfil these requirements don't despair, consider volunteering as a Sporting Coach.
