The Mentoring program requires a 1‑year commitment from both mentors and mentees. Each Mentor-Mentee pair will define the parameters of their relationship.

What to Expect

  • Opportunity to mentor up to two senior students or recent graduates
  • Ability to select local or regional Mentees
  • A guidebook with helpful tips for ensuring a productive and respectful Mentor-Mentee relationship
  • Opportunities to connect with other Mentors at the PDAC Convention
  • PDAC check-in every three months

Mentors are not required to advocate on their Mentee’s behalf to prospective employers and will not be obliged to share industry contacts.

Applicants must be a PDAC member in good standing. With your support we can continue to develop the future leaders of the mineral exploration industry.
