Get involved with Windmill’s Mentorship Program

This program connects Windmill clients with mentors in their respective career industries.

Mentees gain valuable insight from their mentors, which expands their understanding of the Canadian

workplace and helps with career preparation. Whereas, mentors have the opportunity to contribute to the

community by assisting newcomers, sharing their wisdom, and refining their leadership abilities. Being

involved in the Windmill Mentorship Program is highly valued by both our clients and mentors.

How the mentorship program works

Windmill matches mentors — former clients and other volunteers — with mentees based on their

professional backgrounds and goals.

Mentors and mentees can conveniently connect, share their knowledge, expertise, and experiences

as well as learn from one another.

Julianna Yau Yorgan

Career Coach and Windmill Mentor

Most people think that only the mentee benefits from mentorship but it’s not true! I do a lot of work as a

mentor because I’ve been fortunate in my opportunities and want to help others facing challenges I never

had to.

The Windmill loan was the step that made the licensing process possible for me. I wanted to give back.

That's why I said yes to participating in the mentorship program
