Alumni Students Mentorship Program
Over 50 pairs of mentees and mentors matched!
This year's program got off to a great start in October and since then more than 50 pairs of mentees and mentors have been meeting virtually.
The program comes to a close in March. To celebrate, a virtual closing event was held on March 21 with facilitator Sandra Kahale, who led the group in Mentorship Mastermind activities. Attendees had a chance to reflect on their experience in the program and network with other mentors and mentees across a variety of career industries and programs of study.
Read more about the rewarding experiences that current mentors have gained from the program:
"Being an alumni of the Woodsworth Mentorship Program, I experienced the benefits and importance of having a mentor guide you through the transitioning journey into work life after graduating.
The transition is never easy and can be confusing, and I love that the program provides students with a soft cushion to land on during the process.
As a mentor, I have been able to achieve the above by answering any questions my mentee may have about working with data, interviewing with companies, or updating their resume."
"As a first-time mentor, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this program, but the experience quickly exceeded any expectations I could have had! My mentee has inspired me with her unwavering commitment to personal growth and professional development. I have benefited from reflecting on my own trajectory, realizing that I have useful advice to offer, and getting to share in the incredibly impressive successes of my mentee! We both enjoyed the program so much that we have decided to continue meeting informally. I am grateful to have had such a meaningful mentorship experience and look forward to participating in the program again!"
