Abstract

Mentoring relationships have been noted as demonstrably effective in helping young people develop skills, knowledge, and motivation to successfully navigate the transition from high school to adult life. In particular, positive role models are essential for guiding young people to navigate the lived experience of disability as well as improving academic attendance and school performance. Mentorship in the context of blindness and low vision (BLV) is, however, not well studied. This presentation explores the experiences of mentorship within two distinct groups: school-aged children with blindness and low vision (BVL) in Australia and working-aged individuals in Canada. Qualitative data was collected from semi-structured individualised interviews regarding the experiences, understanding, and valuing of mentorship within these two groups. The results indicate the importance of informal role models and formal mentorship within the lives of participants throughout their schooling and work life and how these become more refined and specific over time. A conceptual framework for developing mentoring opportunities for young people with blindness and low vision developed by the authors is presented.
