Throughout the Challenge there will be plenty of opportunities to access and reach out for support. The WELS team will be there to support you through our website, blog and regular webinars. You can also reach out to the WELS community and other challenge members by making comments on this page. You can ask questions and see what fellow challenge participants can come up with. Through the challenge we aim to create a community that supports one another as we reach for the stars. Help is you there – don’t be afraid to ask!
Adult & Peer Mentors
We also recommend you consider trying to organise an adult mentor or guide to help you throughout the course of the Challenge. This person will be an advisor to you and a sounding board for your ideas. They might be able to help you with your planning, time management and help you access the resources you require to bring your challenge plan to fruition. They are there to support you as a backup but you should be leading your challenge. This could be a parent or family member or a family friend. Talk to your parents/guardians about if you would like to do this and who might be a good mentor.
We also encourage each person or team to have a peer mentor who is not working on your project. They are their to encourage, support you and provide feedback.
