MAAP  Mentoring Australia's Apprenticeship Program

Guest speaker Patrick Kelly from St Patrick's Technical College spoke about the need for apprentices, and the achievements of the school in placing 500 apprentices and following through with mentoring to reduce the number of drop-outs. In the past the drop-out rate has been up to 50%. Patrick introduced Maryke Palumbo from MAAP, who is working with the school and local community to strengthen the retention of apprentices.

Maryke P

MAAP (Mentoring Australia's Apprentices Project) was developed in response for large numbers of highly trained, highly skilled and highly motivated vocational employees. Maryke Palumbo appealed to Rotarians to consider using their expertise to mentor these young people perhaps for a period of one hour a week for ten weeks.
