The Student Mentorship Program is now full for the Fall 2020 term. Applications will reopen in December for the Winter 2021 term.
Welcome to the Student Mentor Directory!
If you are a new Mohawk student looking for a way to get connected at the college, you’ve come to the right place! The Student Mentorship Program has been designed to support your transition into life at Mohawk College and to offer a welcoming online community.
Students who join the program will be matched with an upper year student and be added to an online group with other new students. In this group you can:
- Get your questions answered about college life
- Get connected with college resources and services
- Attend weekly virtual small-group hangouts and get to know other students
- Request a one-on-one chat appointment with your Student Mentor
How to Use the Directory
If you’re ready to jump in, take some time to get to know some of the mentors by exploring the directory. Using the search bar below, you can search for mentors by program area (e.g. Business) or areas of interest (e.g. volunteering). By clicking on a mentor’s photo or name, you can read their bio to learn more about them.
To get matched, complete Match with a Mentor Application and tell us why you would like to join the program! Spaces are limited, so we encourage you to apply as soon as you’re ready.
When Melissa began her own Mohawk journey, she herself had a mentor who really helped her with her transition from high school to college and getting involved on campus. Seeing the value in her own experience, and having been a mentor for elementary and secondary students in the past, she knew this would be a wonderful opportunity to support new students.
Melissa is happy to share her love for Mohawk College's inclusive community and the opportunities it can provide for all. If she's not busy on campus with the Sustainability Department, or playing on the Varsity Badminton team, you can find her cycling or designing in her free time.
