Student: Extended! Call For Mentees: Asian Institute Mentorship Program 2021-22

Asian Institute Mentorship Program Call for Student Mentees. Application Due September 23, 2021

We are excited to launch the 2021-22 Asian Institute Mentorship Program (AIM) to connect current students in the Asian Institute’s undergraduate and Master’s programs with alumni for professional development and networking opportunities. This year, AIM will run in the fall and winter academic semesters from September 2021 to April 2022. Students may participate in the program entirely online, but we hope to offer some opportunities for in-person meetings if the public health situation allows. You can participate whether you’re in Toronto or anywhere in the world!

Participating as a mentee can strengthen your professional and personal networks and provide the opportunity for you to learn from past generations of Asian Institute students as you prepare for future academic and career success.

How It Works

If you are interested in becoming a student mentee, please fill out a (short) mentee application form by 11:59PM (EDT), September 23, 2021. Selected students will be matched with an alumni mentor who shares related career interests.

Meet and greets: Meet the mentors and your fellow mentees at an orientation workshop in early October 2021 and celebrate the conclusion of the program at a reception in April 2022 (events may be in-person or virtual depending on the public health situation, but in-person events will always have a remote attendance option).

Training and guidance: Mentors and mentees will receive resources on how to make the most of the AIM experience through a presentation at the orientation workshop and an accompanying pdf guide with further reading, resources, and suggestions for how to structure your meetings.

Connect over the academic semester: Hold at least two meetups with your mentor per term (these can be virtual or in person where possible). AIM encourages our students to develop their communication and networking skills; as such, the expectation will be on you to reach out and set up the first and subsequent meetings with your mentor!

Professional development: Participate in one career-related workshop per term through CLNx to learn more about crafting your resume and cover letter, interview skills, networking, and more. Then share what you learned with your mentor and get their feedback.

Co-Curricular Record: Mentees who complete all of the required components of AIM will receive CCR recognition for their participation. The required components are: 2 meetings per term with your mentor, participation in 2 CLNx career workshops, two short written reflections on the experience, and completion of the AIM surveys.

Questions? Contact Asian Institute Program Advisor and Communications Officer Katherine MacIvor at ai.asianstudies@utoronto.ca.
