PGO is hosting a mentoring session for students and registrants at the University of Toronto Scarborough. We encourage you to attend if you're a full-practising or limited registrant interested in mentoring a budding geoscience student. Mentoring a student is an opportunity to give back to the geoscience community and make a difference in a mentee's future, all while developing leadership and coaching skills. Also, for P.Geo.'s, participation in this event counts as a continuing professional development activity.

This in-person event is free and includes one drink ticket, but registration is required before Nov. 20.
