Peer Mentorship

Registration is now closed for the fall. Please complete our interest form if you would like to participate in winter 2023.

The Peer Mentorship Program is open to all students regardless of year and area of study! Through this program, you will be matched with a peer mentor - a current undergraduate student leader within the Centre for Student Engagement. Our mentors have valuable insight into the UTM experience, how to get involved on campus, and knowledge of UTM supports, services and resources.  

This program has both virtual and in person components. Through our online mentorship platform, you will have the opportunity to make connections with fellow mentees and mentors both in the Peer Mentorship program and in other UTM mentorship programs. Through in-person components, people will have a chance to make connections and socialize with mentees and mentors.


How do I take part?

Registration for the program on a first-come-first-serve basis. We will begin matching in early September. Once you're matched, you will receive an invite to our online mentorship platform where you will connect virtually with your mentor and have access to a network of fellow mentees and mentors!

To stay in the program, make sure to connect with your mentor within the first two weeks of being on the platform.
