Mentor Application

With the help of our mentors, the Leaders of Tomorrow mentorship program brings together post-secondary students in their final year of studies and industry experts to develop the leadership and managerial skills of Vancouver's future business leaders. We greatly appreciate your interest in participating and will respond to your inquiry at the earliest opportunity.


We will notify you if you are selected as a mentor in the summer of each year as this is when we pair our Mentors and Mentees.


You must be a current Member of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade in order to be selected. Unfortunately, not all applicants are selected as we often have more mentors than spaces available. Preference is given to those whose experiences are best matched to students accepted into the LOT program. This application will take you 10-15 minutes to complete.
