An initiative is looking to recruit Islanders to act as mentors to local students.
The Atlantic Canada study and Stay P.E.I. program is designed for international students in their final year at publicly funded Island postsecondary institutions who want to stay in the province after their graduation and plan to find employment.
The program runs from October until August. During this time, students will attend a retreat, a conference and online workshops; all focused on assisting the students with becoming familiar with the Island workforce, best practices and finding employment.
The mentor aspect matches a pair of people, mentor and student, and requires them to meet periodically between January and July. Meetings are usually informal, over a coffee or held online via Skype.
Those interested are asked to contact Kady McDonnell at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
