Benefits of Mentoring

mentor and first year

Although your relationship with the first years you are mentoring will be primarily for their benefit, that doesn’t mean you won’t be getting anything out of it! You’ll get:

  • the personal satisfaction of helping others
  • a sense of being part of a supportive network, and new friendships with other mentors
  • more information about the University, and a better understanding of what services are available and how to access them
  • free training in leadership and interpersonal skills
  • a spiffy certificate for your CV, signed by Dean of Arts and Social Sciences
  • encouragement, advice, and support from other mentors, academic staff, and trainers involved in the program
  • an opportunity to network with your peers at Mentor events and training which are always catered with delicious food
