This is a Local and Global partnership that pairs immigrant and international students with a Canadian-raised student or staff for friendship, practice of communication skills and intercultural exchange.
For immigrant and international students, this is a great way to understand Canadian culture while sharing some of their experiences with a Canadian-raised student or staff.
For Canadian-raised students and staff, this is a great opportunity to learn more about the world outside Canada and develop their intercultural skills.
Commitment is 10 hours of time over the course of a term. The program runs twice a year. January 18th is the sign up deadline for the winter term.
The program is a volunteer opportunity. However, some academic programs also partner with the Diversity and Intercultural Services department to offer the Intercultural Mentorship Program as a graded assignment option to students.
