First Generation Alumni-Student Mentoring Program

trent university gzowskiWere you the first person in your family to attend University? Do you want to share your experiences with current Trent students in the same boat? Then the Office of Student Transitions and Careers wants you to be a mentor in our new 1Gen Mentoring Program!

The 1Gen Mentoring Program is aimed at first generation students who are enrolled in their third or fourth year at Trent University (Peterborough Campus) with the purpose of connecting them with a first generation Trent Alumni as a career focused mentor. This program will attempt to give upper year first generation students an opportunity to interact with a first generation Trent Alumni to ask questions about their experiences as a graduate of university, how they found a job, as well as potential tips and strategies for breaking into their desired field of work.

Contact firstgen@trentu.ca for more information. In order to set mentor pairs up for success, we do require all interested alumni to participate in a short training session on Saturday, September 24 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (light refreshments will be provided).
