What is UFV Lead?
UFV Lead is a dynamic and personalized peer-mentorship and leadership development program for students at any stage in their studies at UFV!
The program’s four-tier mentorship network gives students at various stages in their academic careers an opportunity to receive mentorship, and to mentor others, as they study at UFV, participate in program activities, and take on new and exciting leadership roles in their community.
UFV Lead students get access to unique experiential learning opportunities, personal and professional development workshops, and social connections that will prepare them for academic success, workplace success, and responsible citizenship.
Through personalized support from program staff, students are guided to reflect on their learning, and to mentor each other as they continue to identify and work towards their personal, professional, and academic goals.
UFV Lead strives to create community, and promote leadership development and wellness for students at any stage in their studies at UFV and beyond! Take a look at each role in UFV Lead's four-tier Mentorship Network below to find a level that's the best fit for you.
