The Dean's Office offers two different Mentorship Programs to address the different challenges that arise for students: The First Year Mentorship Program and the Academic Bridging Mentorship Program.
The First Year Mentorship Program is designed for students entering or have entered university from high school.
The Academic Bridging Mentorship Program is designed for students entering or have entered university from the Academic Bridging Program.
Mentors, you can access your monthly logs here.
First Year Mentorship Program:
The First Year Mentorship Program (FYMP) is specifically designed to address the challenges that arise for students making the transition from secondary to post-secondary studies. This program is meant to aid students in their efforts to achieve academic, social, and personal successes as new university students. The flexibility of the program allows it to be geared specifically towards certain types of new students, whether they are commuters, residence students, international students, etc.
The First Year Mentorship Program will support the unique needs of new students and help these students in transitioning to a more independent learning environment. New students will be given the opportunity to attend a variety of seminars such as: academic development, financial assistance, and skills training. Upper-year students can develop leadership and communication skills through a series of workshops, while assisting or working with one of their peers.
Academic Bridging Mentorship Program:
The Academic Bridging Mentorship Program (ABMP) has been created to address the challenges that arise for students making the transition from the Academic Bridging Program to full or part-time studies at Woodsworth College.
The program is designed to guide students in their efforts to achieve their academic, social and personal goals as new university students.
The Academic Bridging Mentorship Program will support the unique needs of Academic Bridging graduates, and will provide participants with the opportunity to learn and grow through guidance, communication and leadership of a supportive community.
The objective of the program is to ensure these new students remain engaged and committed to their development and education. This will be achieved by building confidence and skills, and by providing a safe space for guidance during the transition year.
The Academic Bridging Mentorship Program is also designed to provide mentors with opportunities to develop communication and leadership skills; to further develop their own potential as students and as community leaders.
