Student Links is a mentoring program for students who have an intellectual disability to explore ideas for their future after high school. Student Links matches students to mentors who share a common passion or interest.

Some of the mentors that have been matched with students in the past have been experts in botany, broadcasting, comics, film, geography, bikes, music production, aviation, fashion design, fitness and many more.

Students between the ages of 14 to 21 can learn more about their area of interest or be introduced to members of their community who have similar interests.

Student Links Coordinators introduce students to a member of their community who shares similar interests.
