Mentorships

Main Content

Take a moment to think about the best mentor you've ever had. Coaches, teachers, coworkers, parents and peers; mentors are everywhere. In your life, chances are someone took time to help, offer guidance and make a difference. 

Mentoring provides participants with the opportunity to grow, learn and accomplish goals together.  

All great leaders have mentors (and mentees!)

Mentoring enhances professional portfolios, changes lives and advances careers. Whether you're a seasoned professional or in the early stages of your career, mentorship exposes both parties to new perspectives, ideas and reciprocal learning relationships. 

Become a mentor

The CNIB Foundation is currently recruiting dynamic mentors, from all industries, who have successfully navigated a career transition. Mentors should be employed (or retired) and open to sharing their professional career insights in an open, honest and constructive way. Talent pool mentees will bring various experiences, skills, backgrounds and specialties to the table. 

Time commitment

Mentors should expect an average commitment of one hour/month for up to three months.
