For Mentors

Who Can Become a Mentor?

A mentor is a professional member in good standing who has a strong understanding of his/her discipline and is willing to share that knowledge with current members-in-training, applicants, or other professional members.

 

Why Should I Become a Mentor?

You will have a unique opportunity to impact the career of a less experienced professional, which will not only enhance your leadership and coaching skills, but also enable you to help shape the profession for future generations. Mentoring is also recognized as a professional development activity.

 

What is Involved?

As a mentor with Engineers and Geoscientists BC, you will be sharing your knowledge and experiences with a mentee throughout your one-year term. This can be done with in-person meetings, emails, phone calls, or e-meetings. It is encouraged that you invest at least one hour per month in the program.
