As our university undergoes significant changes in preparation for the fall semester, it is crucial that we develop community building and mental health supports that can continue to operate within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is why King’s is announcing the creation of a student mentorship project. The goal of this project is to virtually pair first-year students with upper years who can help them through their transition to post-secondary education. Mentors will be able to have conversations with their mentees about common class expectations, the Dalhousie and King’s relationship, the King’s Honours Programs, the journalism program, student societies, athletics, the Chapel, and physical and mental health supports at the university. They will also be demonstrating that the King’s student body is a community of thinkers that are caring, amicable, and ambitious! Perhaps most importantly, this project will create new friendships at King’s in a time where social connection is of utmost importance.

If you are interested in participating in the Student Mentorship Project either as an upper-year mentor or an incoming student mentee, please fill out the appropriate Google from linked below by Friday, September 4 at 11:59 p.m., Halifax time.
