Autism Mentorship Initiative

The Autism Mentorship Initiative (AMI) is a peer mentorship program designed to pair volunteer mentors with SFU students who have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The goal of AMI is to improve the mentees' sense of inclusion within the university community and to promote their engagement and success at SFU. Each mentor-mentee pair will identify areas of interest or concern to explore over the course of each term. 

In order to be an effective mentor, volunteers must demonstrate a strong commitment to the AMI program. Volunteer mentors are expected to:

  • Meet with their mentees for 1-2 hours per week
  • Complete the mandatory training session
  • Attend monthly supervision sessions with experts in the field
  • Attend events and workshops, as available
