The Alumni Mentors program pairs motivated upper-year students and recent graduates with an alumni mentor. Mentors are established professionals who help students and recent graduates develop skills for the workplace and expand their professional networks. The program is offered in partnership between the Department of University Advancement, The Carleton University Alumni Association and the Carleton University Students’ Association.

To ensure that your partnership is successful, the program requires that all mentor and mentee pairings connect virtually for 1-hour on a monthly basis from October-April. While the program traditionally encouraged face-to-face meetings we will be asking all pairings for our 2020-22 programs to connect via a video communication platform or by phone.
