The Peer Mentorship Program presents a unique opportunity for you to connect with other SAIT students. Having a peer mentor or being one is a great way to build confidence and enhance essential skills that help you stand out to employers.

Whether you’re starting at SAIT and could use some advice from someone who’s done it all before or looking ahead to graduation and getting hired, being involved with peer mentorship can have a huge impact.

Program details

The Peer Mentorship Program matches senior student mentors with first year mentees. Matches become part of a structured relationship and are based on a common program of study.

A mentor may be matched with a single mentee or with several mentees to form a small group. Mentors and Mentees meet approximately one hour per week for a total of 12 weeks each semester. Mentors and Mentees are supported by orientation and are required to complete the Peer Mentorship Training Course. All mentorship activity will occur online through Microsoft Teams or face to face when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Note: Mentoring is not the same as counselling or tutoring. If you are in need of these services, please contact Student Development and Counselling or Academic Coaching and Tutoring services
