The Perth-based program runs from April to October and participants can nominate to be involved for two consecutive years.

If willing, the mentor and mentee can maintain contact over the summer break. However, this is not compulsory and mentors and mentees can ask to be matched with a different partner in the second year.

The registration process is simplified for mentors and mentees who are matched with new partners in the second year but the mentoring program is the same as the first year.
