Peer Learning & Alumni Networking Connector Program

The MES at York Planning Alumni Committee (MYPAC) is excited to announce our new partnership and pilot with the Faculty of Environmental & Urban Change to launch the Peer Learning & Alumni Networking Connector Program (PLAN Connector Program) to link MES planning alumni and students with one another. This initiative is a direct response to planning student requests for mentorship opportunities.  We’re eager to launch this initiative with your help as a graduate of the MES Planning Program!

About the PLAN Connector Pilot Program

The PLAN Connector Pilot Program enables students and new grads to virtually connect with alumni professionals about their career-related interests and goals through mentoring meetings over a 3-month period (June-August). During these meetings alumni mentors share information with mentees about their job, practice, organization, and career journey.
