The Somali Mentorship Project is one of a series of collaborative initiatives being spearheaded by the Canadian International Peace Project. This project is intended to aid in creating a successful cadre of Canadian Somali professionals, who can then assume greater leadership roles to assist with the development of their own community and contribute to Canadian society at large.
What is Mentoring?
Mentorship refers to a developmental relationship between a more experience elder and a less experienced individual, referred to as a mentee or protégé. With regards to our project, the elder, due to experience can guide and counsel the individual or mentee in terms of growth professionally and perhaps, personally as well. Mentorship is a two-way process, where both participants can benefit.
Potential Benefits for Mentors:
The CIPP is seeking mentors from the Greater Toronto professional community to participate in an innovative mentorship project, between the local Professionals and the Somali Community.
