Should I Apply to the Mentor-Mentee Matching Initiative?

You should apply as a mentee if you are a Sikh student (16+) looking for academic or professional advice.

You should apply as a mentor if you are a working professional looking to give back to the community and support the next generation of Sikhs.

The mentor-mentee matching initiative is limited to British Columbia and Ontario at this time.

Space is limited, so preference will be given to students enrolled in a post-secondary institution.
