Applications closing for Greek-Australian Society’s 2024 mentoring program


2024 marks the fourth successive year of the Greek-Australian Society Inc (GAS)’s flagship Mentoring Program, which continues to grow across Sydney, Melbourne, Wollongong, and Melbourne, the United States and Greece.

The GAS Mentoring Program is an initiative that provides an innovative and genuine platform for emerging Greek Australian talents. Successful mentee participants in the 2024 GAS Mentoring Program will receive dedicated mentorship from their assigned Mentors to help guide and navigate them through their personal development and career journey.

This year’s expanded Mentor cohort includes a vast depth of professional experience and Greek Australian community engagement. New Mentor additions to the Program in 2024 include Bill Papastergiadis OAM, President of the Greek Community of Melbourne; John Lazarou, Founder of Brisbane-based The Coffee Club; and Evangelos Pappas, Professor and Associate Dean at the University of Wollongong.

In 2024, GAS will continue to implement refined methodologies and techniques introduced in the 2023
iteration to enhance the quality and delivery of the Program. These enhancements come off the back of
continuous feedback across its previous rounds of the Program from Mentors and mentees alike, and
will ensure optimal delivery and quality for all participants.

Meanwhile, legacy features of the Program that were introduced in the pilot iteration will continue to be
maintained and supported; particularly the concept of cross-border mentorship across different
Australian states and territories, as well as overseas mentors based in the United States and Greece.

The GAS Mentoring Program is available exclusively to the benefit of GAS Members. Annual GAS
Membership is available online for $30.00.
