The Enriched Support Program (ESP) in Carleton’s Centre for Initiatives in Education (CIE) helps students from non-traditional learning backgrounds transition to postsecondary education —enabling them to begin university while bridging to degree admission. The CIE-ESP Mentorship Program pairs students who have completed the program with current ESP students to provide peer support and guidance, share experience and program resources, and create a sense of community. Program mentors and mentees benefit from positive, reciprocal relationships and increased feelings of inclusion, wellbeing and accomplishment.

By giving through the CIE-ESP Student Mentorship Program, you help equip students with the skills and confidence they need to succeed, while also instilling a sense of purpose and the value of giving back that they will carry with them long after they graduate.
