Become a Mentor

Mentor applications for Fall 2022 are due July 17, 2022.

Mentors are upper-year Lakehead students who thrive in leadership positions and are looking for a way to expand their skill set. They take initiative and are positive role models both within academics and beyond.

Mentors are provided with a manual of resources and supports, as well as training tailored to their role. They initiate contact with their mentee(s) and keep an open line of communication to effectively listen to and respond to mentee(s) questions through the first six weeks of the term.

Mentors are also able to add this position to their co-curricular record!

Become a Mentee

Mentee applications for Fall 2022 are due September 5, 2022.

Mentees are students who are new to Lakehead and are looking for some extra support through their transition to campus. Mentees are students looking to get the most out of their Lakehead experience. At the end of the program, mentees will:

  • Feel safe and supported through their transition to university.

  • Be knowledgeable of where to go to access supports and services offered by the university.

  • Feel involved and a part of the Lakehead Orillia community!

Each week of the program is focused around a different topic, giving mentees opportunities to reflect on strategies to be successful in their goals. Some of the weekly topics covered this year include establishing balance between academics and personal life, adapting to university academic expectations, and the eight areas of wellness.
