The Holden Mentor Program is now open for applications.  All primary school teams participating in the HPV and Try-athlon categories of the 2016 RACV Energy Breakthrough are invited to apply.

Successful schools will be matched with an experienced Holden staff member and will work one-on-one to prepare their entry for November.

Applications close Friday, 17 June 2016.


The RACV Energy Breakthrough is delighted the team at Holden are again offering mentors to primary schools with a human powered vehicle entry in this year’s event.

Now in its seventh year, the Program continues to be an incredible opportunity for primary schools to make a connection with an industry leader.  This relationship can significantly help teams prepare for the event, particularly the Design & Construction and Display & Presentation components.

Holden Mentors come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, from engineering to public relations and everything in between.  This is an opportunity not to be missed!

How does it work?

After the application process closes, submissions will be assessed and the successful school’s Team Manager will be contacted early in term three to confirm your involvement in the program.

Team Managers will be invited to contact the Holden Mentors to arrange meetings, discussions or phone conferences.  Schools are encouraged to communicate regularly with their allocated mentor who will provide guidance and industry expertise throughout terms 3 and 4.

How do I apply?

Applications are invited and accepted now until Friday, 17 June 2016.
