ACE Mentorship program is designed to provide young students and new grads in the Albanian Canadian community with access to networking and mentoring opportunities, which in turn will help them make the strategic connections that will lead to attaining meaningful career opportunities. Our mission is to create sustained and supportive mentor relationships for participants who are post-secondary students

Overview:

The ACE mentorship program is designed to provide young adults in the community with access to networking and mentoring. Our mission is to connect mentees with suitable mentors and to ensure both parties reap the rewards of this opportunity.

The mentor’s role is to guide, to give advice, and to support the mentee in entering and/or progressing in their profession through observation, assessment, modeling, and by providing guidance.

Program Highlights:

Our program offers a three-month, one-on-one mentoring based on development goals, career interests and other general interests. Mentors/Mentees are required to attend the orientation session, on November 16 and to connect in-person for a minimum of 6 hours during the 90 day period.

ACE staff will monitor progress and provide assistance, if needed, followed by an evaluation at the end of the period

Please note that a successful mentoring relationship will be dependent on the ability – from both parties –
to create a relationship of trust, clearly defining roles and responsibilities, establishing short- and long-term goals, using open and supportive communication, and collaboratively solving problems.
