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 and the Carleton University Alumni Association.
Be a Mentor
We are currently accepting applicants for the 2019-20 academic year.
Mentors are Carleton alumni who are seasoned professionals and industry leaders prepared to share their knowledge, resources and passion. Alumni who earned their undergraduate degree 5 or more years ago are welcome to apply.
Mentoring is a great way to stay connected to the Carleton community and contribute to the success of current and future Carleton alumni.
Be a Mentee
Mentee applications for the 2019-20 academic year have now closed.
Mentee Applications for 2020-21 will reopen in April.
Mentees are either: 1) hard-working students (undergraduate or graduate) in their third or fourth year of study or, 2) motivated recent graduates (Class of ’17, ’18 or ’19).
Mentees can expect to receive guidance to help them navigate various career options, learn invaluable skills for professional development and make new contacts to give them a competitive advantage in the job market.
