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

Yvonne Ho

Mentor & Campus Ambassador

Year 2, University of Toronto

"I just wanted to say that the LEAP Mentorship Program has really allowed me to connect with younger students and learn about the challenges that they face when transitioning from high school to university. Throughout the program I've strengthened my interpersonal skills by hosting weekly online meetings to discuss important transition topics and had the opportunity to work with other students my age from universities all over Canada. The mentorship program has inspired me to move beyond being a mentor and I've decided to stay with the team as a Campus Ambassador. "
