An orientation webinar will be conducted shortly after matches have been announced for all participants.

It will take them through the structure of the program and what to expect including the roles and responsibilities of mentors and mentees. We try to have a past mentor and mentee on hand for these webinars to allow for any questions participants may have regarding the participation expectations.

We will also endeavor to answer any other questions about the program you may have at the end of the webinar.

An orientation kit will be emailed out to all participants shortly after the program commences and will include a mentoring agreement template, mentee goals document, program Code of Conduct and more.
