Wellington Inspiring Young People with Disability

The aim of the Inspiring Young People with a Disability events is to raise expectations about the potential for people with disability (this includes individuals, stakeholders and employers). The events link students with successful mentors in the community who can provide information about specific careers or general information about their own career journeys. This is an information and knowledge sharing event giving the students a sense of what’s out there and inspiring them with a ‘can do attitude’. Guest speakers at these events are always a local person with disability who shares their transition story. Participants are provided with a chance to engage in positive social interaction with adult mentors outside their school and family environment. This gives them an opportunity to hear information about their rights and entitlements, supports available, educational options and pathways. The adult mentors range from local councillors, local employers, representatives of industry, TAFE, University, service providers and local community members.
