Talent Incubator: Mentorships

The ICSC Foundation and ICSC Foundation Canada Mentorship Program is designed to give undergraduate and graduate students exposure to the industry outside of the classroom, providing information, sharing experiences and facilitating connections to others.

Mentors play an invaluable role in furthering a student’s professional growth. Mentors are ICSC members with relevant experience who are excited about building the industry’s next generation of talent. Based on encouragement, openness and a willingness to learn and share, this program offers a rich experience that often benefits the mentor as much as it does the student mentee.  

Program details

  • Academic year commitment that runs from early September through the end of May, although the mentoring pair may decide to continue the relationship until a later date.
  • A minimum of six to eight points of contact (via phone, Skype, email, etc.); if possible, one face-to-face meeting is strongly encouraged.
  • Required participation in an orientation session and submission of impact reports to assess progress and help identify trouble spots and opportunities.
  • Mentee applicants must be ICSC student members who are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program for the upcoming fall semester. Mentor applicants must be ICSC members with at least five years of work experience in the industry.

Applications for the 2021-2022 program are now being accepted.
