Three reasons to be a peer mentor #HereAtSAIT
Mentees aren’t the only ones who benefit from SAIT’s Peer Mentorship Program — mentors do, as well!
Not only do mentors get to see someone else grow and progress because of their support but they also gain valuable skills throughout the process. But don’t take it from us — hear from students who’ve experienced the program firsthand.
Here are three reasons you should be a peer mentor, from past mentors and Bachelor of Business Administration students Luiz Rodrigues and Dipasah Kumar.
1. Enhance your skillset.
“Being a mentor allowed me to develop skills such as time management, meeting preparation and English proficiency which are experiences I will take with me for the rest of my life.” – Luiz
2. Grow your network and make meaningful connections.
“Meeting new people and creating connections is critical to academic and professional success. The Peer Mentorship Program helps you grow and expand your network. One of the best parts is meeting and creating connections with new people, both mentees and the mentorship leaders.” – Luiz
“I would 100% recommend this program to other SAIT students. It’s an amazing opportunity for both new and returning students to learn how to network.” – Dipasah
3. Get involved and give back.
“Through the Peer Mentorship Program, I was able to get involved with the SAIT community, learn to be more understanding, and share my experiences in a way that can help others. Mentors are always here for their mentees, and I believe it is one of the best things about this program, it gives student a place to go to when they feel lost. I’m glad that I got to have this experience.” – Dipasah
Thanks to becoming mentors, Dipasah and Luiz walked away with new skills, connections and a fulfilling sense of purpose — now it’s your turn! To learn more or apply, visit SAIT’s Peer Mentorship Program.
