Alumni Mentorship Program
The Alumni Mentorship Program (AMP) enhances the undergraduate experience of senior Woodsworth College students and provides alumni an opportunity to reconnect with the College.
The AMP provides an avenue for professional development for 3rd/4th year students and gives alumni an opportunity to engage with Woodsworth College by sharing knowledge and experiences in the work force with mentees in a structured setting.
Each mentee gets paired with a personal mentor. A detailed mentee application form will provide information about previous academic experience, areas of work interest and other personal characteristics that will match them with the most suitable mentor.
Benefits of Being a Mentee
The AMP allows for undergraduate students nearing the end of their undergraduate degree to connect with young professionals from various sectors. These young professionals are Woodsworth Alumni who have distinguished themselves in their chosen fields, and as such, will provide great advice for current students. Through various meetings of each partnership’s choosing, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and gain insight while making important connections and develop skills as they themselves venture out into the professional world.
Who Are Our Mentors?
Our mentors come from a variety of fields and sectors. These include but are not limited to: lawyers, government directors, graduate students, teachers, investment bankers, and HR specialists.
All mentors are requested to attend a Mentor Orientation, Opening and Closing Receptions and to meet with their mentees a minimum of three times from October to end of March – an approximate time commitment of 12 hours for the duration of the program.
