- The Program will involve matching mentors and mentees based on interests and needs.
- Direct one-on-one mentoring sessions up to 2 hours/month (varies as needed depending on academic or other needs and availability)
- Mentors and mentees have the freedom to plan and schedule the mentoring sessions based on their availability and preferences.
- Mentoring sessions could be in person or via phone/Skype (or other web tools).
- In person sessions are planned by mentors and mentees at a place that is suitable for both of them (e.g., Edmonton Public Libraries facilities, colleges and universities facilities, Al Rashid Mosque facilities; coffee shop or others).
- Mentors are required to initiate contact with their mentees to check on their progress
- Mentees are encouraged to reach out to their mentors whenever they need advice or support
- Each of the mentorship Program team members will be assigned a number of mentors and mentees that they should follow-up with on monthly basis to check on the progress of the mentorship, and identify any issues that need to be addressed. Each member should then share their feedback with the rest of the group. This follow-up could be done in person, or via phone/web.
At any time, mentors and mentees can reach out to the mentorship Program team member assigned to them to discuss any issues or matters that may arise.
