The Mentorship Programme

The Mentorship Programme was designed to enable student at the U.W.I. to strengthen their leadership and management skills and develop linkages with U.W.I.staff and leaders in Jamaica's corporate community.

How the Programme Works

Each student is matched with a Mentor who provides counsel regarding professional and personal development. The Mentor will arrange for the student to attend an officers' or executive meeting and Mentors will provide opportunities for student to participate in or assist with a community service project or voluntary activity. Opportunities will be provided for the students to attend a company-sponsored social event and on other occasions to meet University academic staff and administrators representing faculties and departments related to the student's academic interest and career goals.

To be selected, student must be

  • registered in a full-time degree programme;
  • in level II or Level III of their programme;
  • between the ages of 18 and 25.
