Webster University Mentoring Program

Alumni Mentor Program

 

Give of yourself. Get the rewards.

The Webster Mentoring Program provides an opportunity for students and alumni to connect in a positive one-on-one mentoring relationship.

A Special Opportunity

Through this six-month program, alumni can provide guidance and support to students by interacting with them, exchanging ideas, and sharing their experiences and knowledge of career paths. Alumni mentors give back to their alma mater by serving as role models and leaders as they help students reach their career goals.

Alumni and Student applications are due by the end of September 30. Program participants will be selected and matched by a committee and an interview process in October. The mentoring program will run from October 15 to April 15.
