Remember what it felt like to be a student at Okanagan College? Imagine if you'd had a network of professionals who could share the answers you needed when you were graduating and going off into the real world.

Just like you, students and recent graduates today are full of potential but unsure of where to start. 

Today, we're making that network a relatity. Okanagan College and the Okanagan College Alumni Assocaition have partnered with Ten Thousand Coffees and RBC Future Launch, a professional development platform, to create OC Connects and we need people just like you to lead it. 

How does it work?

  1. You will be automatically matched with a student each month who has questions related to your background, degree and skill set.
  2. Grab a coffee with them in-person, chat on the phone, or meet virtually on Google Hangouts.
  3. Use your Okanagan College-affiliated mentorship to add to your CV and get a LinkedIn profile certification to add to your volunteer experience.
