LEAP hosts 3 different mentorship cohorts all year round and each cohort lasts 8 weeks. Our program allows students to experience 1-on-1 and group mentorship while developing useful post-secondary skills including networking, soft skills, managing mental health, succeeding in academics, etc. 

 

Once the program begins, each week is dedicated to a new preset topic chosen by our LEAP team to help guide mentors and mentees in their discussions. Mentees will also have the opportunity to attend weekly panels, hosted by our team that will correspond accordingly to the weekly topics such as post-secondary life, career options, debunking misconceptions, etc.

Testimonials

Zoe Prizzon​

Mentee

Year 1, University of British Columbia

"Before I joined LEAP as a mentee, I was anxious about the domineering jump between high school and university. But now, because of the #TuesdayTalks webinars, I'm optimistic about the transition! The webinars provide me with meaningful, genuine answers to all of my university related questions, and I look forward to every Tuesday where I can meet new panelists and gain a deeper insight on the university lifestyle. My favourite part about LEAP is how university students are helping students, so they understand our worries and concerns on a more personal level, since they've been there themselves!"​
