Mentors

Thank you for volunteering for the program. The knowledge, advice, and resources a mentor shares depends on the format and goals of a specific mentoring relationship.

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.
