The Mentee Application is not yet available for the 2017-18 cycle.

The fourth cycle of the Mentorship Program is coming to Innis College, and we are looking for enthusiastic 2nd, 3rd and 4th year mentees!

This program brings together Innis alumni with current students in one-to-one mentorship pairings. If you are looking for strategies to create a fulfilling student experience, or to discover expectations and possibilities after graduation, this program is an excellent opportunity to gather wisdom from someone who has been in your shoes.
