Welcome to our mentoring page for students.
A mentor may share with a mentee information about his or her own career path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role model. A mentor serves as a teacher, counsellor, and advocate to a protégée. The intent of mentoring is to shape a career/Business/Skill that shows promise.
We believe mentoring is an opportunity to give back to the community by teaching the next generation of leaders and innovators.
