Transition Mentor Program

The Victoria College Transition Mentorship Program, sponsored by the Victoria College Office of the Dean of Students, is an essential part of the first year experience of all incoming students.

All incoming students are paired with a Transition Mentor who will help guide them through their first year at Victoria College! Transition Mentors orient new students to university life by providing them with opportunities to meet other incoming students and to engage with the University of Toronto and Victoria College through Commuter Orientation and Orientation Week.

Transition Mentors also host weekly Success Series Programming throughout the duration of the academic school year, and send weekly emails to their mentees about Vic events, programs, workshops, and resources.

Through active participation in the Transition Mentorship Program, incoming students will have the foundation for a successful transition into university. They will also gain the skills and knowledge to thrive, both academically and non-academically, throughout their undergraduate degree!

Description: Transition Mentors at Victoria College are upper-year students who are responsible for engaging first-year students within a group-mentorship setting, starting with Orientation Week and throughout the year.

Deadline: Applications are still being accepted on a rolling basis, please feel free to submit your application at your earliest convenience.
