The Mentors-in-Training program is designed to help mentees become mentors. Learn the roles, responsibilities and skills necessary to become a First in the Family mentor. Participants in this program will receive first consideration to be hired as a mentor.
How it works
First in the Family mentees are invited to apply for the Mentors-in-Training program during the second semester of their first year. Those selected will have the opportunity to develop a range of skills during the second year of their undergraduate degree.
- Work with staff, senior and peer mentors, to learn how to plan, execute and co-facilitate First in the Family Fridays and other events
- Attend mentorship professional development workshops, and share what you learned with the other Mentors-In-Training
- Facilitate community building activities to help establish cooperation, collaboration and community within the program
Once Mentors-in-Training have completed their role, they will receive first consideration to be hired in their third year as peer mentors provided they apply, attend the interview and are deemed qualified.
This program is open to undergraduate students registered as First in the Family mentees, who actively meet with their mentor, receive additional support from the Learning Strategist, and attend program events.
APPLICATION PERIOD: May 1 – May 14, 11:59 p.m., 2017.
