Broaden your horizons! Volunteer for RRC’s Intercultural Mentorship Program

September 16, 2014

MEntorship

Would you like to expand your worldview by mentoring a Red River College student who’s new to Canada?

The College’s Intercultural Mentorship Program pairs immigrant and international students with Canadian-raised students or staff for friendship, language practice and intercultural exchanges.

For immigrant and international students, the program provides an opportunity to get to know Canadian culture, while sharing some of their own unique experiences with their Canadian-raised counterparts.

For Canadian participants, the program provides an opportunity for developing leadership and mentorship skills — and building intercultural competencies — while learning more about the world outside their door.

The College is currently recruiting volunteers for this year’s program. The time commitment is a mere 10 hours, spread over the course of an academic term. (The program runs twice a year, during the Fall and Winter terms.)

Participation is voluntary, though some academic programs also partner with RRC’s Diversity and Intercultural Services office to offer the mentorship program as a graded assignment option.

The deadline for volunteers is Wednesday, Jan. 21. Click here to apply; for more information, contact Michelle Johnson, Mentorship Program Coordinator, at mmjohnson@rrc.ca or 204.632.3847.
