We are looking for Industry Mentors!


The Program Coordinator at the GSM will match each participant with a mineral resources industry professional who will act as a mentor for the duration of the program. The mentor’s role is to discuss what the participant is learning from the program and provide feedback on how this is applicable to the workplace and the mineral resources industry.


Mentor Time Commitment: 

  • Students will be asked to organize a one-on-one meeting (in-person or online) with their mentor each semester (4 in total) for no longer than 30 minutes each.
  • Mentors will be encouraged (but not required) to attend the program launch (late Sept/early Oct 2021) and closing event (April 2023). Arrangements will be made for mentors who wish to participate virtually.
  • Mentors will be recognized as such on our website and their time dedicated to our program can count towards Professional Development Units for their professional associations. 


If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact our Program Coordinator – Nicole Tardif.
