Mentorship Plus

The Mentorship Plus program caters to every Brock student – even alumni!

No matter what year or program you’re in, Mentorship Plus can benefit you. The program is broken into levels to suit you depending on your year of study. The levels of Mentorship are further explained on the site.

During my time at Brock I was involved with 2 of the 4 levels. I was a senior mentor, and also a career mentee. As a senior mentor I was able to warn my mentee (a 1st year student) about all the things I screwed up on in my first year like parking fines, library fees on reserves, stumbling around Isaac’s, mastering all-nighters etc. If I had been involved with Mentorship Plus in first year I’m sure I would have avoided a lot of mistakes and become more involved with the Brock Community.

In my 3rd and 4th year I had a Career Mentor. I’m very thankful for the opportunity to meet with a professional in my desired field because it allowed me to gain insider knowledge about the industry and decide if I should continue pursuing that career goal. Being a graduating mentee is truly a rewarding opportunity and I recommend it to all 3rd and 4th year students. It’ll set you in the right direction and ease your nerves for graduation and transitioning to the workforce.

Those are just my experiences... hundreds of students have participated and benefited from Mentorship Plus. Visit our website to discover how else you can be involved!

You can be a mentor and share your experiences, or you can be a mentee and learn from someone who knows the ropes. There’s a fit for you in the Mentorship Plus program!
