Alumni Mentorship Program

Futures and Options alumni at alumni picnic event

We believe strongly in the power of mentorship to shape and support young people on their career and college journeys. Our mentorship program pairs our older alumni or Junior Board members with a recent Futures and Options student who is looking for extra guidance as they navigate college and explore career options. The program helps to foster connections, networking opportunities, and relationships between alumni of different ages and professional levels. It can be a transformative experience for everyone who participates. 

The dedication and one-on-one support that a mentor provides, as well as their insight and first-hand experience, is an excellent resource for our alumni.

“I think it’s really good to have outside perspectives and to hear from someone who’s already applied to college and has a lot of knowledge to offer having been through that process.”
