Strengthening Bonds

The heart of the Elevate Mentorship Program lies in the intentional strengthening of connections among participants.

Note: Full participation and in-person attendance at these gatherings are not just encouraged but expected, as they play an instrumental role in the overall success of our program.

Quarterly Meetings

Running from February to December, the 2024 program presents a distinctive opportunity for connection through four quarterly in-person meetings held in the vibrant setting of Canberra. These gatherings serve as pivotal moments, providing a dedicated space and time for guided discussions, goal setting, professional development, and personal connections between mentorship pairs and the broader cohort. Each meeting is thoughtfully designed to foster meaningful relationships and facilitate both individual and collective growth.


Mid Program Networking Event

Designed to amplify connections within the cohort, the Elevate Program will hold Mid-Program Networking Events. This event not only expands professional networks but also enriches participants' knowledge through shared experiences.


Elevate goes beyond face-to-face interactions; it extends into the digital realm with monthly newsletters. These newsletters serve as a dynamic platform for sharing news, resources, and opportunities, ensuring that participants stay connected, informed, and inspired on their mentorship journey.


Elevate is more than a mentorship initiative; it is a community-building endeavour that thrives on the engagement and commitment of each participant.
