Cedar advocates mentorship opportunities for students of all ages. This can be in the form of our activities, one on one mentorship programs through the IMPulse program, and career development opportunities through our partners like Geering Up. If you are interested in connecting with Individuals on campus to further strengthen your connections to UBC and opportunities for further academic development, please read below concerning some opportunities for mentorship for Indigenous students.
IMPulse Mentorship Program
The IMPulse Mentorship Program is an Indigenous Mentorship Program for Indigenous high school students to provide them with an opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with role models at the university who understand their cultural history, and to experience elements of university campus first-hand. This program is an exciting partnership between UBC .caISES, UBC Let’s Talk Science, STEM Fellowship, and the UBC Faculties of Science and Land and Food Systems.
UBC Geering Up has a variety of opportunities in Mentorship for Indigenous Youth. They do STEM workshops in Indigenous communities throughout British Columbia. Students participating in these opportunities can hope to gain experience developing and delivering STEM workshops working directly with Indigenous community partners.
