Your journey with SAIT isn't over when you graduate — here are five ways to stay in touch with your alma mater. 

1. Volunteer with us

Be part of the energy and excitement that is the SAIT community when you volunteer!  

Become a mentor

Get paired up with a SAIT student to help them advance their interpersonal skills, grow their network, enhance their understanding of the workplace and explore potential career paths. The Industry Mentorship Program runs every fall and winter semester. The suggested time commitment is around one hour per week, including training, meetings with your mentee, and feedback surveys.

Contact student.employment@sait.ca if you’re interested in learning more.

Help SAIT students practice their English.

Take part in a memorable cross-cultural experience, while helping a SAIT student practice their English language skills! You must be a fluent English speaker, ready to share your Canadian cultural experiences and interested in learning about other cultures. 

Contact student.engagement@sait.ca to register for the next intake.

Share your industry expertise with students and fellow alumni

Host a virtual or in-person industry mentorship circle by leading an open discussion about career preparation with SAIT students and alumni. Topics may include innovative networking strategies, tips for navigating the workplace, career search techniques and more. As the mentor, you get to decide on the subject, however, we're always happy to offer suggestions!

Contact student.employment@sait.ca to get hosting.

More opportunities

Other opportunities include volunteering at Open House, New Student Orientation and Convocation. We couldn’t pull off these experiences for our students and graduates without the help of volunteers.

Get in touch with alumni@sait.ca to learn more or fill out the Volunteer Intake Form, and we will reach out to you as opportunities arise. 

2. Join a growing network of SAIT alumni
