The Accessibility Mentorship Program (AMP)

About the Program

The Accessibility Mentorship Program (AMP) is a university-run group coordinated by staff and upper year students that provides an inclusive and welcoming community for participating students. The program operates out of a collaborative partnership between The Student Success Centre and Services for Student with Disabilities (SSD). These teams aim to match successful, engaged, motivated and extensively trained upper-year mentors with first year students who identify as having accessibility needs and are registered with SSD. AMP Mentors provide academic and social support to offer a successful transition to university life, while being mindful of and sensitive to the unique needs of their mentees.
