Minors

Protecting the privacy of minors is very important. For that reason, Cybermentor requires parental consent for a minor’s account to be activated, for each school year the minor participates in the program. All of a minor’s personal contact information is kept confidential, and personally identifiable information such as the minor’s first name, grade, interests and personal statement are only shared with the minor’s mentor once they are matched.

Questions

If you have questions or concerns please contact the Program Administrator by phone (403-220-8283) or email (cybermentor@ucalgary.ca) or write to Cybermentor Program Administrator University of Calgary, Schulich School of Engineering 2500 University Drive NW Calgary, AB T2N 1N4
