Mentors - become a mentor
The University of Toronto has many Peer Mentor programs. Some of them are routed in identity, area of study or open to all.
Check the Mentorship Database to see what programs are available and contact the coordinator directly to find out timelines and how to apply. Some of the programs are run by staff or faculty, others by students as part of a club or student society. All of the programs have their own recruitment and selection process.
The four phases of mentorship
These resources are designed for current peer mentors or staff, faculty, or students who are running or developing mentoring programs.
Mentorship is a learning relationship between two or more people, and it typically follows four phases:
- Preparing: the discovery phase, when you find out if mentorship is right for you.
- Negotiating: the business phase, when you help your mentee set learning goals.
- Enabling growth: the work phase, when you support and provide feedback to your mentee.
- Coming to closure: the assessment stage, where you assess the value of your mentoring relationship and move forward.
