CFNs Multicultural Peer Mentorship for Professionals is a 4-month program that matches Mentors working as professionals in their industry in Canada with Mentees who are professionals striving to find employment in their fields. It allows for newcomers to learn from the stories and experiences of successful immigrant professionals, while improving their knowledge, skills and understanding of the Canadian workplace culture and the environment. Additionally, it helps establish a wider peer support network within and outside one's culture. Funding for the program comes from United Way of Calgary and Area and City of Calgary Family and Community Support Services.
Antonio Gerona is currently a mentor at CFN, volunteering his time in the Peer Mentoring for Professionals Program and giving back to the community. To hear from Antonio simply click below.
