Mentor Recruitment

Mentor Volunteer Incentives and Benefits


Volunteer mentors are eligible to be recognized for their contributions to the Niijii program in two different ways. They may have their contributions recognized on their Co-Curriculum Record in the areas of Activity Participation and Professional Development. They may also receive a letter of recognition signed by the Dean of Science and Environmental Studies and the Vice-Provost of Indigenous Initiatives.
