This year we are celebrating our 10th year of co-op mentorship! I will be discussing how we did it, where we started and where we are today. How to successfully incorporate a mentorship program and the benefits to our students, staff and our alumni. I will also talk about our most recent program for senior students called C2I (Co-op to Industry) mentorship program and how it differs from our original program.

Why we introduced a mentorship program

  • Research/pilot /findings/what worked and what didn’t work over the years and the evolution to where we are today.
  • Provide a more in-depth look at what our mentorship programs are all about.
