Chamber/NIC Mentorship Program
Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce & North Island College School of Business
The purpose of the North Island College School of Business/Chamber of Commerce mentorship program is to connect top business students with working professionals, sparking imagination, fostering community connections and building intercultural intelligence. The collaborative mentorship program launched in the fall of 2014 forged strong connections between NIC business students and Comox Valley business leaders. The successful pilot project was established in partnership between the NIC School of Business and the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Student mentees meet with mentors in the business community from November to April, developing a personalized plan with a time commitment of six meetings or six hours minimum over the mentorship period. While mentees build networking skills and gain valuable business contacts, mentors have the opportunity to share their own knowledge and experience with a new generation of business leaders while tapping in to the students’ theoretical knowledge of current business trends.
The Purpose and Goals of the Mentorship Program
Mentors can apply to the program in August of each year. It is not guaranteed that you will be matched with a mentee.
