Applications to become a mentor with the Global Community Mentorship Program for the September 2018 - Spring 2019 is now open! Apply on Myinvolvement.
What is the Global Community Mentorship Program?
The GCMP, formerly known as the International Mentorship Program, was created to help new students of various backgrounds adjust to their new surroundings. New students are matched with a student volunteer, called a mentor. Mentors provide new students with information about resources and opportunities at SFU that might be of interest, invite them to social and cultural events on and off campus, and answer questions about day-to-day life in Canada.
Last year, approximately 200 new students were matched with SFU student volunteers who enhanced their experience at SFU and in the Greater Vancouver area. Mentors have the opportunity to interact and make friends with students from diverse cultural backgrounds and spend time with a network of people committed to international understanding and friendship.
Who can be a mentor?
We encourage all returning domestic and international students, who are willing to commit to helping other students (having completed at least 2 terms at SFU), to apply to the Global Community Mentorship Program.
What does a mentor do?
What does a team leader do?
A team leader is responsible for providing ongoing support, training and feedback for mentors assigned to their teams, consisting of approximately 4-6 mentors. Team leaders must maintain regular communication with their team, set monthly meetings with all team members, and send monthly activity reports to the Program Coordinator. Team leaders are also mentors.
