The MUN Mentors program aims to ease the transition process for new international students while also engaging current students at Memorial in an intercultural volunteer initiative. It accomplishes this goal by matching current students with new international students throughout their first semester at Memorial.
Mentees are able to ask pre-arrival questions, feel supported in navigating St. John’s and Memorial culture, and gain tips for being successful inside and outside of the classroom. Mentors are able to share their knowledge of living and studying here and develop strong leadership skills. The MUN Mentors program matches Mentees and Mentors across cultures thereby allowing every participant to learn about a culture other than their own and work to develop effective intercultural communication skills.
