SEAT = Sit, Eat And Talk
The 2018 SEAT (Sit, Eat & Talk) mentoring initiative regularly connected 20 Grade 6 students at Mooroopna Primary School with 14 volunteers during a lunchtime meal. The participants shared stories and completed activities that prompted them to talk about their job and careers. The project was supported by 15 Berry Street School students and nine Lighthouse staff prepared healthy lunches.
