WHAT IS CONNECT?
Connect is a peer mentorship program to ease the transition of first semester international students. Connect provides a support team for new international students by creating an opportunity for students to connect with an International Peer Mentor (Returning Student) and a Staff Mentor (Faculty/Staff/Admin person). Welcome Teams are familiar with the Humber campus, services and local community and will help new students become more familiar with a new culture and a new academic setting by providing cultural support and information about student life at Humber.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
International Peer Mentors are students in their second semester or higher in a Humber post-secondary or post-graduate programs. They should also be in good academic standing. Peer Mentors are caring, hardworking and mature individuals who are willing to take a leadership role in the program.

The program allows peer mentors to develop their leadership skills, communication skills, inter-personal skills along with opportunities to assist in the planning of Connect events, marketing and communication of the program, workshop facilitation and many other skills.
