We Are Always Accepting New Members!

Social Enterprise Exploration and Discovery (SEED) is a mentorship program targeted towards connecting students from different backgrounds who are passionate about social enterprise with successful professionals who are already involved in the social enterprise scene. Through SEED, we aim to help develop the next generation of impact makers, and demonstrate to undergraduate students that social enterprise is a viable career path.

Time Commitment

The program will run from October to April. Mentees and mentors are free to set up meetings to their convenience; we suggest that you meet about once a month for an hour or two, and through the duration of the program we ask that you meet at least 5 times. Additionally, we will host a Welcome Mixer on the second week of October and a Closing Ceremony on the first week of April, both of which all mentees are expected to attend. Dates will be announced soon.

For Mentors

Why Be a Mentor?

  • Assist UBC students in learning more about the social enterprise field and their specific areas of interest, to become better-educated and passionate future professionals.
  • Shape the next generation of professionals to be conscious business leaders and changemakers in the Vancouver community and beyond.
  • Mentees can provide a fresh perspective on real business challenges or situations mentors face in their day-to-day work.
  • The SEED mentorship program will aim to connect mentors and mentees based on the personal and professional aspirations of both parties.

Who are we looking for?

  • Successful industry professionals involved in social enterprises who have passion for what they do and are interested in mentoring students on the possible career paths, challenges, benefits, and opportunities associated with working in a social enterprise. Mentors must be willing and able to foster an environment of open communication between themselves and mentees to facilitate interaction, engagement, and sharing of knowledge and experience.
