Experience our innovative approach to mentorship.

Our mentorship program consists of two tracks to serve the differing needs of younger college students (who want more general guidance and support to navigate college) and of juniors and seniors (who want more focused career path guidance and support). 

  • In Track 1: the General Mentorship Program, we group 2 mentors and 4-6 students into a pod that meets 5 times over a semester. We also provide discussion guides for each session to prompt meaningful sharing and reflection. Students and professionals find the pod discussions so enjoyable, insightful, and eye-opening that many have come back semester after semester.
     

  • In Track 2: the Career Guidance Program, we learn about the student's career aspirations, and find a professional in that field to share advice and knowledge on how to enter and build a career in that field, and how to navigate the internship and job search process. 

Please note: in Fall 2020, both tracks will run virtually.
