Alumni Guiding the Way
Another successful year of the Skule™ Mentorship program, chaired by Caprice Boisvert (MIE 9T3), has come to an end. In its fourth year, a distinct pattern has emerged: many alumni who volunteer as mentors, participated as mentees when they were students. Also, several relationships formed between alumni and students continue well beyond the program. For more information about Skule™ Mentorship or to sign up as a mentor, visit our webpage.
