Rivers to Success: Mentoring Indigenous Students

Figuring out your next steps after school? Let a mentor guide you!

Rivers to Success is a national mentorship program that supports the academic and career success of Indigenous students. Rivers has two streams of mentorship. We match Indigenous post-secondary students with high school students to support and encourage graduation and transition to post-secondary. Rivers also pairs Indigenous post-secondary students with professionals in relevant career fields. The mentoring relationship is driven by the mentee’s developmental goals and the mentor’s knowledge and experience.
