Who can become a Mentor?
An Architect licensed in Ontario, Life Members and Retired Members of the OAA.
You must meet with the intern two three times a year, review their progress, and offer advice. You can do this over coffee, meet over the telephone, whatever is convenient for you and the intern.
Mentors are in demand
Every year, interns delay licensure because they have difficulty finding a mentor.
How do I get involved?

The Young Architects and Interns Forums is currently exploring supplemental forms of mentorship that could be offered in addition to the existing system. This would be a voluntary project that does not replace the existing system. Additional or bonus forms of mentorship could include collaborative design projects for not-for-profits, design charettes and/or community build projects.
If you would like to participate in this discussion, or for peer to peer support within an informal network, please join the yAIF, and submit your ideas to the forum. Better yet, attend one of their events!
