what is threefourfive?
threefourfive is a free online mentoring service for Year 12 students who have been affected by the outbreak of COVID-19.
threefourfive helps Year 12 students navigate their way through this difficult time by pairing them with university students who lead short, regular, one-to-one sessions designed to increase motivation, facilitate productivity and provide accountability.
threefourfive aims to champion a #student4student movement. We want to bring people together so that we can be stronger in the face of this health crisis, because that’s what Australians do.
here's how the program works
here's what we'll talk about Our mentors are all students at university. More importantly, they’ve all finished Year 12 within the last five years.
They know what is required to work effectively and take responsibility for your own learning and progress.
Specifically, there are four key things mentors can speak about which will facilitate productive study and maintain motivation.
The one major thing separating successful students from unsuccessful students is skilful time management. We educate students on how to effectively structure their day and manage their time so they can simultaneously meet short-term and long-term deadlines.
Working amidst the disruptions to ordinary life diminishes your accountability. It’s easy to have a cheat day or procrastinate. Our mentors regularly check in with students to track their progress and provide guidance and support where needed.
Work harder, not smarter. Our mentors know how to study effectively and can help you find a method that works for you.
Life after school can be daunting. Having direction and goals makes it so much easier. We help plan university courses, scholarships, gap years, overseas study, volunteering, work and so much more.
here's who you'll talk to
All of our mentors are university students and have a valid Working With Children Check. They have all been in your shoes and have done well in their degrees at university. Between them, they study medicine, law, arts, commerce, science, and engineering. Some have gone on gap years, others have had internships. Some are maths whizzes, others love books. Some are musical, others are sporty – we even have an Olympian!
Students are paired with mentors based on subjects studied in Year 12, interests outside of school and goals for the future.
