The Institute mentorship program offers new Institute students a mentor who is an experienced Institute student during a one-year period. The mentor offers guidance and support while the new student is preparing for their first internship including applying for jobs and doing interviews. The relationship that is built benefits both the mentor and the mentee as they learn about each other and the experiences each have had.
As mentors, students gain co-curricular credit, build their network, gain experience as a coach, and develop their soft skills.
As mentees, students receive support and gain knowledge about their transition to university, their internship search, and how to achieve academic and professional success.
