What is MAX Mentors?

MAX Mentors is a professional mentorship program that connects near-career students with early career mentors and early career professionals with mid-career mentors to catalyze excellence amongst the Canadian Muslim community and help a new generation break glass ceilings.

We operate in Toronto and Montreal, and launched in Edmonton on May 6th. MAX Mentors will be expanding to other cities across the country in the coming years.
