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.
