GET INVOLVED

We need your help.

At Grandshake our ultimate mission is to inspire a whole generation of changemakers and to give our youth the confidence required to facilitate their dreams. 

Becoming a Grandshake mentor is an exciting opportunity for you to give back to the community and empower our younger generation to better the world we live in. 
Think back to when you first graduated high school—full of passion and excitement with no clear path to follow. It can be seriously daunting. By becoming a mentor you alleviate this fear for the future, representing a student’s support system and crucial career guide.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world - Nelson Mandela

How do we do this?

Grandshake is releasing virtual work experience programs, specifically tailored to prepare and educate our next generation of leaders. Grandshake is a turn-key solution for secondary schools who are searching for meaningful pathway experiences to transition students into high-demand careers; such as STEM. We are excited to be offering work experiences online, to all Australian schools, as an opportunity to engage with students and communities specifically within regional areas who have limited access to any career development.

It is through these programs that Grandshake strives to increase both school and student awareness of the life-enriching opportunities immersed within STEM careers.

Who can become a mentor?

Currently,  we are seeking professionals who have practised their passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, Project Management, Environmental Studies, Sustainability, Agriculture or Consulting. Those who boast a minimum of a graduate degree and/or senior levels of industry experience, we have a wide range of mentorship opportunities for you. 

No agendas, no pitches just mentors inspiring and guiding students to feel confident in their career-making choices.
