Feedback from previous years:

“I believe the transfer of knowledge between generations is crucial for young Canadians. There is so much we can learn from people who passed the university of life. Learning about my mentor’s professional experience gave me an understanding what directions I want to take after graduating from Trent.” – Stanislav Puchyn recent graduate of the BBA program. 

“The student I mentored is now an employee of (my organization)The Meyer Financial Group at CIBC Wood Gundy. Definitely a win-win program!” – Winston Meyer ’78, mentor
