Quality mentorship enhances your chances for success. Laurier offers programming that fosters a community of innovative thinkers to draw on for guidance and inspiration.

Summer Mentorship Program

The Summer Mentorship Program (SMP) is an opportunity to continue developing your project or social venture throughout the summer. 

As a participant in the SMP, you will have access to a network of social innovators and entrepreneurs to brainstorm ideas and discuss the future of your project or venture. You are welcome to attend a series of skills development workshops hosted by experts in social innovation, entrepreneurship, communications, marketing and community engagement. 

This program is available to students who have completed a C3 Innovation Labs (C3IL) course in a previous academic year. All of the programming for the SMP takes place in the Purpose Lab

Spend the summer developing your project or social venture with the support of faculty and staff mentors – you may come out of it with a career! Check out some of our SMP program streams.
