What makes you a good mentor?

I have benefitted from being a mentee in the past and seen the way that it has helped me to articulate and advance my goals and I'm looking forward to getting to know someone through this connection.

About Joshua Prowse

Originally from Ottawa, Josh lived and worked in Canada’s north and on Vancouver Island before settling in Toronto. He has volunteered with the Katimavik program on the Gitsegukla reserve in northern BC, cycled across BC while putting on a play about the environment with ‘The Otesha Project’, and WWOOFed in Quebec. He also took part in the Next Up progressive youth leadership program run in conjunction with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.

Josh has sought to apply his legal education to issues of social and environmental justice, including working as a lawyer with a large labour union, working with a legal aid clinic in Vancouver to tackle housing issues, and becoming engaged in refugee law. In his spare time, Josh has co-hosted a program Common Law Radio on Vancouver Co-op Radio and occasionally trots out his limited cross-country skiing skills.
