Professional Mentorship

What is the APM program?

   The ACSioN Professional Mentorship (APM) program aims to facilitate the meaningful development of long-term, one-on-one relationships between established African-Canadian professionals and their younger counterparts - new professionals and career-minded students.

   Access to mentorship is one of the most critically-important variables which influences professional success. In the African-Canadian community, many professionals are ready to give back by offering valuable advice, yet few programs exist to make it possible for them to do so easily and efficiently. Through the APM program, the ACSioN Network is helping build the way towards a more robust professional African-Canadian community.
