Mentoring is at the heart of the PCCAPS student experience.
Mentors represent the "public" audience required to elevate student performance and learning.
Success Skill development increases with coaching.
This is an opportunity to pay industry knowledge forward to young people.
Level of involvement can vary depending upon one’s availability. Generally, students set up at least one meeting with their mentor early in the year, and at least one more towards the end of the term. However, more mentor involvement gives more strength to their learning.
