Interested in becoming an alum mentor to a current YHS student or a recent YHS graduate?
The YHS Mentorship Program offers a variety of options and opportunities to offer guidance and share your knowledge and experience with your fellow Yorkies.
Become an Alum Mentor to a Current Student
Our Senior students are at a pivotal crossroads where they are exploring post-secondary opportunities and career pathways that will ultimately shape who they are beyond York House School.
As a part of the Career-Life Connections curriculum, the YHS Mentorship Program will provide current students with the opportunity to network and connect with YHS alums where they can gain valuable insight into post-secondary programs and career industries while developing lifelong relationships so that they can make informed decisions about their future. See our YHS Mentorship FAQ
for more information.
How does it work?
The YHS Mentorship Program begins in Grade 11 as a part of the Career-Life Connections curriculum at York House School. Each year, students will engage with one or more mentors. Mentors can remain involved in the program for as long as they wish and can participate in multiple mentorships over time. See our YHS Mentoring a Student Guide for Alums
for more information on mentoring a YHS student.
Alum-to-Alum Mentorship Opportunities
Over the past several years, the YHS Alum Mentorship program has been successfully matching mentors and mentees from within our alum community. Connections made have led to internships and opportunities for career growth. True to our school motto “Not for Ourselves Alone”, guiding hands have pushed, encouraged, and nurtured. Our mentors know that they’ve made an impact both personally and professionally. Our mentees can explore career pathways they may not have considered before. With our new online platform, YHS Connect
, the Alum Mentorship Program has never been easier to be part of.
