UTSC Partners in Leadership Alumni Mentorship Program

"Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction" 
– John C. Crosby

The goal of the Partners in Leadership alumni mentorship program is to tap into the vast professional experience of U of T Scarborough alumni to help our students transition from student life to work life and assist in strengthening their self image and vision of their possible futures.

With Partners in Leadership we aim to provide experiential learning for our students by infusing our alumni community and resources into student life, in order to enrich the overall student experience.

For students, if you are entering your final year and would like to participate as a mentee, you must watch the virtual orientation session (to be posted) as well as filling out our student mentee application.

For our alumni, if you would like to reconnect with UTSC and make a difference in the life of a current undergraduate, fill out our alumni mentor application to become a Partner in Leadership!
