Kaleidoscope Mentoring Program is an award-winning program working to help skilled newcomer professionals improve their employment potential by matching them with mentors from their industry or occupation. Within 3-6 months of completing their mentoring relationship, 70% of KMP’s past mentees have secured jobs in their profession.
KMP will be inviting applications in May 2020 to recruit mentees and mentors for the next mentoring cycle running in July – October 2020. Join us at this information session to get answers to all your questions about joining this program as a mentee.
