Experience the rewards of mentoring a student. Give advice, make connections and see what you discover along the way.

Jump to mentorship for students

alumni mentorship event

As an OISE alumni, you will receive an e-mail invitation every September to participate in the OISE Mentorship Program. Once you've signed up, you will be invited to an interactive virtual launch event and receive instructions for connecting with up to two mentees digitally on your own terms.

Current alumni participants will hear from us on Sept. 24 with your new mentee's contact info and important details about the launch event. Please check the email you used to register then.

2020-21 program features

  • Match with an OISE student interested in your field
  • Meet once a month from October to March online and discuss your shared interests and experiences
  • Learn together at our virtual launch event, workshops and exclusive seminars 

Whether you're assigned one mentee or two, your time committment remains the same. We encourage you to schedule meetings when all participants can attend together. Meetings can be any length or format that is mutually agreed upon.

While your mentorship journey is self-directed, we're always here to provide support. Just send us an e-mail.
