Call for corporate mentors

Call for corporate mentors

By Karin Derkley

Education Legal Biography Mentoring Young Persons 

For former commercial lawyer Steve Clifford, running Doxa’s cadetship program is a rewarding way to help young people achieve their goals. Twenty-five years ago Steve Clifford, then a commercial lawyer at Allens, signed up to be one of the first corporate mentors for Doxa's cadetship program. The program helps young people from disadvantaged backgrounds go through university with the support of a scholarship and work experience and the guidance of mentors. Since then, in between doing corporate deals at Allens and chairing the charity program, Mr Clifford has mentored dozens of Doxa cadets. "I did law because I wanted to help people. I got caught up in the corporate world, but mentoring gave me a way of helping kids with talent and drive but facing opportunity barriers," he says. A couple of years ago, Mr Clifford realised that helping other people was what he wanted to do fulltime. "I had coffee with dozens of people in the not for profit sector to see where I could fit in, and people said don’t leave it too long, do it while you still have passion and energy."
