Maximizing Mentorship features three workshops that support students in building skills so they can benefit from the mentorship experience.
- Defining Mentorship Roles: An individual, take-home training session focused on identifying the roles of mentors and mentees.
- Reciprocity & Expectations: The first virtual group workshop discusses the importance of reciprocity and communicating expectations in a mentoring relationship.
- Goal Setting & Ending a Mentorship: The second virtual group workshop concentrates on exploring strategies to help mentees make the most of and feel comfortable in their experience.
This is a CCR eligible program.
This training is appropriate for any student who is serving in a mentee role or would like to be a mentee at the University of Toronto.
How The Program Works
This program is offered once per semester:
- Fall semester training: Friday, October 1, 2021 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
- Winter semester training: TBA
Defining Mentorship Roles can be completed when convenient, followed by the submission of a post-workshop reflection exercise.
Reciprocity & Expectations and Goal Setting & Ending a Mentorship are offered together as a two-hour training.
To earn CCR recognition, you must complete all three workshops (a total of three hours of training).
