The McGill Mentor Program

Welcome to the McGill Mentor Program, a joint initiative of McGill Development & Alumni Relations (DAR) and the
McGill Career Planning Service (CaPS).

Would you like to volunteer to be a mentor to a current McGill student in order to help him or her reach their career goals? The McGill Mentor Program, in existence for over 15 years, has matched hundreds of McGill alumni with students. Mentors have helped students in their search for advice, direction and a glimpse of reality in regards to what their futures might have in store. Meetings between mentor and mentee are as flexible as the participants desire them to be: they can occur as often as is convenient to both and range from casual exchanges to formal meetings to email exchanges to telephone calls. So you donít have to live in Montreal to be a mentor. Whether you just graduated last year or 50 years ago, please consider helping a McGill student.
