Alumni Mentorship Program (AMP)

Alumni Mentorship Program graphic

From sharing lessons learned and stories of success, to exploring industry and post-secondary insights, the St. Michaels University School Alumni Mentorship Program (or AMP for short) is your opportunity to connect with other alumni to share your skills as a mentor or support as a mentee.

Available to all SMUS alumni, the program is facilitated through SMUS Connect, the school’s online alumni community. We encourage you to ask questions, share challenges and opportunities, and support one another to see the excellence in all of us.

We also suggest you read the handbook below to get some advice on being a mentor and mentee. For more information contact Denise Rees, Alumni Relations at [email protected].

How to participate

Join as a mentor

  1. Go to smusconnect.com and log in or register if you have not signed up for SMUS Connect yet.
  2. Create or update your profile to help potential mentees learn more about you and your experience. You will be asked if you are "willing to help" and will be given a list of options. Select the ways you are interested in helping (these options will be used to filter your availability as a potential mentor).
  3. To connect with a potential mentee, respond to requests via SMUS Connect, which can be managed by clicking on "Mentoring" in the left-hand navigation box and selecting "Mentor Relationships. You will also receive an email from SMUS Connect when a request is made.

Join as a mentee
