The Mentorship Database is a searchable list of all of the Mentorship Programs we know of at U of T St. George.
Why might I want a mentor?
1. Mentors have experience: Most mentors are happy to share their experiences with you, so you can learn how things worked out for them. Then you can make your own decisions on how you would like to proceed with your choices or dilemma.
2. Mentors offer encouragement and inspiration: It is always great to have a supporter and that is one of the main functions of a mentor. They have been where you are, so you know that getting there is possible–and they know what it is like to be in a situation similar to yours.
3. Mentors know things: Due to experience and training, mentors know about resources that may assist you or “hidden” information that is not easily apparent to you.
What type of mentor should I look for?
There are as many different mentors as there are people in the world. It helps to think about why you want to talk to a mentor and what your goals are.
A peer mentor is great if you are looking for assistance in transitioning to U of T, whereas a career mentor is great if you are looking to transition out of U of T.
