Registration Now Open For Fall 2023 Protégés! (Sold Out)

interVivos is excited to announce the launch of our Fall 2023 Mentorship Program, commencing on Wednesday, August 23, 2023. This six-month program will run from September 2023 to February 2024.

Protégé spots are now sold out, but you can sign up for our mailing list so you don't miss out on your chance to become a protégé in our upcoming Winter 2023 program! You can sign up here.

The Fall 2023 Mentorship Program is dedicated to amplifying the voices of volunteer mentors who identify as women, trans, and gender-diverse. Through this program, we aim to showcase their remarkable work and contributions.

This Edmonton-based program offers volunteer mentors the opportunity to connect with individuals from diverse backgrounds and experiences, regardless of their own gender identity. Protégés need not identify as women, trans, or gender-diverse to take part. interVivos will ensure a safe environment for participants to openly share their experiences during the program. Our open-door policy is designed to foster trust and provide unwavering support.

No specific age or level of experience is required; the only prerequisite is an eagerness to learn, grow, and make a positive impact within the community.

Mentors and protégés alike are expected to embrace diverse perspectives while focusing on common ground, commit to meeting at least 3 times with their match, and establish clear goals to guide their journey.

Recognizing the challenges posed by current times and inflation concerns, we have diligently worked to maintain consistent pricing and ensure the program's accessibility. Our program strives to be affordable and accessible to all. Protégés can select their fee based on their financial circumstances, and these fees (ranging from $55 to $75) directly contribute to our non-profit expenses. Additionally, we offer complimentary spots to local non-profit organizations.
