BABSOC Peer Mentoring Program

About the program

Designed to connect BABS students at different stages of their degrees, this program encourages mentors and mentees to develop a supportive network and facilitate conversation about possibilities in the BABS field.

Mentors and mentees are assigned a pair or small group at the beginning of term, through which they are encouraged to meet on a regular basis, at a minimum of once per week, and facilitate conversation about study, life, and beyond the undergraduate degree. Halfway through the program, "buddy groups" were established, through which existing pairs or groups were encouraged to combine their mentoring sessions, in order to ensure supportive interaction in the wider program. Mentors and mentees have first access to a number of BABSOC social, professional and academic events throughout the year, which they are highly encouraged to attend as a bonding activity in the program.

Given the pressures of COVID, this program encourages the use of online platforms of communication, such as Zoom, which has added greater flexibility in accommodating for schedules and demands.
