Please join us for the VIC Mentoring Program 2024

The VIC YWP Mentoring Program pairs students, young professionals and industry representatives across the Metropolitan and Regional areas for a mentorship program. The program fosters skill enhancement, while providing a means to transfer valuable experience and expertise. We’ll help you understand how to navigate a meaningful mentor/mentee relationship and get the most from the experience. Throughout the program, various development topics will be covered including goals setting, work-life balance, communicating and networking.

Mentors and mentees alike can benefit from the committed two-way partnership.


The Launch Event will be held on 28 February 2024 hosted by our generous sponsor Stantec. During the breakfast launch, we will provide you with some insight on why mentoring is important, the roles of the mentee and mentor, some tips and tricks to make the most of the program and key focus areas for this year’s program.


For the first time, the mentoring program is available for AWA members free. 


Please reach out to if you are interested in registering for both mentor and mentee programs.

How does the Mentoring Program work?

  1. Register for the program (see application link below). You will be asked to answer a few questions for us to help understand how best the program can help you. This information will be shared with mentors/mentees to assist in the matching process. Please ensure you do not include any sensitive career information that you do not wish to have shared.

  2. Mentor/Mentee pairing will be completed and you will be advised of your pairing.

  3. Opportunity to participate in a meet & greet breakfast event on Wednesday 28 February 2024 in Melbourne. You will have an opportunity to meet with a range of different water professionals who have registered to be in the program. This is an informal event and a potential opportunity for mentors or mentees to meet in a group environment.

  4. Mentoring pairs agree on how often you will meet and how you will contact each other. The VIC AWA YWP Mentoring Coordinators will send out information on occasion to help spark discussion points or ideas. The program runs for 9 months but your relationship doesn’t have to end there - some mentoring relationships last a lifetime!
