Help Newcomers Develop Canadian Careers

1. Workplace Connections, MOSAIC – Vancouver

Help a skilled immigrant settle into professional life in Canada through this volunteer program that matches skilled immigrants with Canadian professionals in an informal mentoring relationship for three months.

This is a great volunteer opportunity if you:

Partners discuss workplace culture and professional issues. Mentors help their partners gain confidence in job search, explore career options, practice interview skills and build professional networks. While newcomers clearly benefit by having a skilled peer to help them, mentors also gain through a mentoring relationship: they learn about other cultures, develop relationships that truly make a difference, and help newcomers succeed.

Partners spend just a few hours each week together for about three months. Meeting times and place are flexible.
