Alumni Mentorship Program

Overview

Since 2005, the Alumni Mentorship Program has fostered valuable relationships between Skule™ alumni and students. Alumni Mentors share their knowledge and experience and provide students with the encouragement and insights they need to get a great start to their careers and begin to set a course for the future. They enhance students’ educational experience and give back to their alma mater in a unique and rewarding way. Mentors often also learn from their bright young student mentees as they help them navigate important decisions at a critical time in their lives.

The program is open to undergraduate (including Professional Experience Year internship participants), graduate students (MASc, MEng and PhD) and alumni who graduated more than one year ago. Matches meet at the program’s kick-off event held at the beginning of the fall semester. From October through March, mentors and mentees connect informally as they wish, and all matches gather at several program events planned throughout the year.

How it Works

Alumni are welcome to join the AMP at any time. Mentors who are not matched with a mentee formally in October will be called upon over a dozen times throughout the year for one-off events related to mentoring students in a professional development setting.

Students next chance to join the formal AMP will occur again in September 2021.

All participants are required to be a member U of T Engineering CONNECT.
