As a Mentor

Join as a mentor to serve the community of high school students, new comers, international students, internationally graduated professionals and other target groups. It’s a very exciting and rewarding opportunity to make a positive difference in someone’s life.

Before becoming a mentor, here are a few things to understand about the role of mentoring. Most of us have had a teacher, colleague, or coach who has been a mentor to us and made a positive difference in our lives. Those people wore many hats, acting as role models, cheerleaders, and friends etc. Mentors assume these different roles during the course of a relationship.

We at Ontario Heroes need mentors to share some basic qualities:

  • A sincere desire to be involved with a person
  • Respect for people
  • Active listening skills
  • Empathy
  • Ability to see solutions and opportunities
  • Flexibility
  • Passionate about diversity and inclusion
  • Knowledgeable about their field and the Canadian workplace
  • Willing to learn and willing to share what they know
  • Connected to their industry sector or the broader business community
  • Committed to professional development
  • Available for two hours per month at least over the course of six months

*There is no expectation that a mentor needs to find a job for their mentee.
