This is a campus-based mentor programme that matches Year 7 and 8 students with University students to keep kids excited about learning. The Aspire Programme is a collaboration between UniCrew, Otago Community Trust, local partner schools and Otakou Marae to create an experience that inspires young people who are at risk of disengaging with learning.
We currently have 2 streams: Wednesday afternoon and Friday afternoon, 3-5pm.
The programme comprises 8 sessions that span a semester.
