Mentorship Program

High School Mentorship Program

Our Program

Women in Engineering, UBC (WiE)’s high school mentorship program is for female* grade 11-12 high school students interested in learning about engineering, gaining insight into the university application process, and hearing form current undergrad/graduate students about their engineering experiences.

*WiE would like to acknowledge that “female” is not an accurate description for everyone. We use an “*” to purposefully include cis and trans women, non-binary and intersex people.

 

Goals

This program seeks to:

  • Excite and encourage future engineers
  • Provide inclusive and equitable access to engineering
  • Support students as they navigate the university application process
  • Create connections between UBC Engineering and the greater Vancouver community
  • Offer professional, academic, and interpersonal guidance to mentees as they transition into post-secondary
