The PSA Needs Mentors!

Calling all upper year psychology students! Interested in developing your leadership skills or getting involved with the psychology community? Then consider becoming a mentor for the Psychology Students’ Association mentorship program!

The aim of the program is to connect upper year psychology students with first year students interested in psychology to facilitate their transition into university life. As a mentor, your duties will enlist your expertise as a psychology student by helping your mentees navigate through their psychology program and general university concerns. Due to the fact that this is a mentorship program, you will not be expected to tutor your mentees in course-related affairs.

Important: You will have the option to receive a CCR credit if you undergo mentorship training and fully meet the requirements. If you are thinking to receive a CCR credit, please register for all three sessions of the Mentorship Foundational Trainings on this website: http://www.studentlife.utoronto.ca/mpp/mentor-development. The Multi-Day Options are still available in October, so make sure to register as soon as possible! More details will be sent out shortly regarding other requirements to receive a CCR credit.

To apply, please fill out the form provided below. The deadline to apply is October 6th at 11:59 pm. Thoughts, comments, questions? Send us an email at psa.academiccommittee@gmail.com We look forward to your application!
