Become a Mentee

  • Use Microsoft Teams to stay updated on the program

Mentee Benefits

  • Build relationships with other students 
    • Starting a new program at post-secondary can be a scary process, but you are not alone! Students that have been in your shoes are here to help guide you through your first semester. This program also hosts events that will give you the opportunity to network with hundreds of other students. 
  • Get to know Douglas faster and stay up to date 
    • Douglas College has a wide variety of services available to you to help in your journey. Your mentor is not a tutor, counsellor, or instructor, but will be able to refer you to the appropriate services when you have questions or concerns and keep you up to date on events and activities happening around the college.
