Innis Alumni Mentorship Program

Innis Alumni Mentorship Program lolo

 

The Innis Alumni Mentorship Program is dedicated to facilitating instructive and meaningful connections between current students and alumni and friends of the College. Through one to one mentee-mentor relationships, alumni mentors will share their valuable experiences and insights with student mentees, helping them to have beneficial university experience and prepare for life beyond Innis.

The program is an opportunity for students to explore a career field of interest, practice professionalism, and work towards some personal or career-orientated goals with the guidance of a mentor. Mentoring enables alumni to have a direct impact on students, broadening their University experiences and enriching the greater Innis College community. Mentors are also invited to work towards their own career goals alongside their mentees, and are welcome to attend professional development opportunities embedded in the program, such as discussions and workshops.

“As an upper year student at Innis College, I am constantly being asked what my plans are after graduation. I often have a difficult time providing an answer. A mentorship program would mean that students would have a chance to become better equipped for post-graduation. I would love to have the opportunity to have a mentor who could help me answer my questions about life after Innis college and maybe even provide insight about what opportunities they found and how.” – Jasmine Denike (Innis, 2015)
