Mentor Application

The Professional Mentoring Program, hosted by the Student Life Centre at Brescia University College, is a a voluntary, one-to-one mentoring program, designed to bring professionals together with senior Brescia students for the purpose of professional growth. Mentors will share their knowledge of the "real world" with students and provide insight on preparing for and navigating through the world post-graduation. This opportunity will allow our students to build career networks and grow as professionals and leaders.

The program runs from September to April and is structured around monthly mentor and mentee meetings, and includes groups events for all mentors and mentees in October, November, January and late March.

Any leader in our London community or any Brescia alumnae who would like to mentor a Brescia student and is able to commit 4 to 6 hours per month from September to April is encouraged to apply to the Professional Mentoring Program.

Are you a Brescia alumnae?*
BA - Major in English
School, Program, Additional Credentials, etc.
If applicable.
Responsibilities, areas of expertise, previous jobs held, work environment, etc.
Have you participated in Brescia's mentoring program before?*
Consider how you would prefer to communicate, the type of relationship you want to build, your coaching strengths, areas where your mentee can help you grow, your personality and interests.
Are you able to meet (virtually or in-person) with you Mentee at least once a month from September 2022 to April 2023?*
The program will be hosting four group gatherings with all Mentors and Mentees with a blended delivery approach that includes both in-person and virtual events. These events are hosted in the evening from 6-8 p.m. (EST) on dates that will be decided in September based on the availability of the Mentees and Mentors.
Unfortunately, not all applicants will be matched with a Mentee for the 2022-2023 academic year. Those individuals who are matched with a Mentee are invited to attend the Professional Mentoring Program Mentor Info Session on Wednesday, September 14th, 2022 from 7pm-8:30 p.m. (EST). This session includes a program overview, an introduction to the mentee-mentor activities, and an opportunity for Q+A.

We greatly appreciate your interest in the Professional Mentoring Program and thank you for generous offer of sharing time and knowledge with our Brescia students.
