Mentor a student… and strengthen our community

U of T offers numerous opportunities for alumni to mentor students. This valuable work broadens your own network and lets you share your expertise – and it helps young people with diverse backgrounds to launch their careers, develop skills and meet the challenges of life after university. Together, we create a stronger, engaged and inclusive community.

How to be an ideal mentor

Mentoring can be deeply satisfying for both mentor and mentee. As well as the pleasure of giving back, you hone your coaching skills, self-awareness and understanding of your own field. The ideal mentor is committed, thoughtful, confidential and constructive.
