Why get a mentor

Does it seem like you are the only student on campus with family responsibilities?

A mentor can share with you valuable tips and candid advice to help you integrate the demands of caring for children with academic commitments in a safe and supportive environment. You may want to connect with a mentor to chat about:

  • Strategies and insights on caring for a family member
  • A specific question on child care
  • Getting your toddler to sleep
  • Your newly found pregnancy!

How to get a mentor

Send us an email at family.care@utoronto.ca and we will assign a mentor to you. You and the peer mentor can choose the best way to communicate. Our mentors are available to meet on a variety of dates and times.

Peer Mentor Drop-in Hours

A peer mentor will also be available on Thursdays from 12:00 to 2:00 pm.

Who are our mentors

Our peer mentors are University of Toronto students from diverse backgrounds - men and women, undergraduates and graduates, some are dealing with elder care and others with child care responsibilities or some with both.
