WHAT IS PEER MENTORING

Our Peer Mentoring Program is specifically designed for autistic people aged 18 years and over. The program takes a flexible and individualised
approach to mentoring. This means that we will work to match mentors with mentees that share similar goals, interests, and preferences. We will also help mentors and mentees to set up a unique mentoring arrangement that works best for them. For example, some mentors and mentees might prefer to meet once per week at a local library. Others might want to meet once a fortnight via Zoom.

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR

MENTEE

Mentees are autistic adults ( 18+) seeking to raise their self-confidence, build awareness of personal strengths, or achieve personal goals. Receiving
mentorship from an autistic mentor will provide mentees with access to a nonjudgemental, like-minded person to discuss thoughts, fears, and aspirations with.

MENTORS

Mentors can come from any walk of life. They may be university students, working professionals, those living independently, or other autistic individuals with a
particular skillset they are confident sharing with others. Throughout the program, mentors act as a knowledgeable guide and resource to help mentees with their personal development.
