Employment Mentorship Program

Would you like to meet people working in your desired field of work? Join our Employment Mentorship Program!

KCR's Employment Mentorship Program aims to assist you in learning more about Canadian workplace culture, improve your job search skills and meet people already working in your field of interest.

We currently have mentors in computer programming, banking, and social work. If you are interested in any of these areas and would like to be matched to one of these mentors, please contact Vicki at 250.763.8008 ext 139.

If none of those areas of work interest you and you would like a mentor for a different type of work, please contact Marriana at the above number. We will find a mentor for you.

Settlement Mentorship Program

  • Do you want to practice your English?
  • Do you want to meet more people in Kelowna?
  • Do you want to become more involved in Canadian culture and lifestyle?
The Settlement Mentorship Program can match you with a mentor, who has been living in Canada for a longer amount of time. You and your mentor will meet once a week for a 6 month period and your mentor can help you practice your English, meet people and become more involved in Canadian culture by doing different activities that you are both interested in.

If you or your family are interested in being matched with a mentor or mentor family, please contact Marriana at 250.763.8008 ext 135.
