Mentorship Program

The OISE Mentorship Program is the largest alumni and student mentorship matching program at the University of Toronto. Each year, hundreds of our mentors and mentees advance their professional portfolio within a supportive, inclusive mentorship community.

As OISE alumni, you will receive an email invitation to participate in the OISE Mentorship Program every September. Once signed up, you will be invited to an interactive launch event and receive instructions for connecting with up to two mentees on agreed terms. Read our OISE Mentorship Program Terms & Disclaimer.
