At CommunAbility we believe that there is something powerful and empowering in disabled people supporting other disabled people! All too often, disabled people are perceived as the recipients of support rather than providers. Our 16-week e-mentorship program uniquely addresses this by providing postsecondary students with disabilities the opportunity to develop supportive mentorship relationships with postsecondary graduates with disabilities.
Because our program is online, regardless of where you live in the province of Canada, you can take part in a positive and rewarding mentorship experience that provides a postsecondary student with a disability with support and guidance.
Our e-mentorship program offers benefits for both mentors and mentees. As a mentor, you will benefit from sharing your insights and experiences. The program also provides the opportunity for you to give back and may lead to more personal satisfaction. Mentees benefit tremendously from the knowledge, support, and wisdom they will receive from their mentors.
