Alumni Mentoring Workshop: Apply Now!

Microsoft Teams Image 49

The application is now open for the 2023 Alumni Mentoring Workshop for YES and FLEX alumni, and applications for both mentors and mentees are currently being accepted. 

During this five-week mentoring and networking opportunity, alumni participants will be matched with a mentor or mentee according to their interests, needs, and specialization areas; attend online workshops with professional trainers; and engage in networking events. 

The mentoring program gives alumni the opportunity to learn from each other and share advice and experience. Participants will later be equipped to apply what they’ve learned in real-world situations like university studies, job applications, and the workplace.

Mentors and mentees will meet virtually each week, and all participants will have the opportunity to take part in two or more virtual sessions. 

American Councils is working with MIUSA to meet accommodations requests, including ASL interpretation, captions, accessible (screen-reader friendly) versions of the presentations and materials, and other types of accommodations as needed. Please describe any other accommodations you may need in the comment box in the application.  

Participants will commit up to 3.5 hours per week for the duration of five weeks, from February 6 to March 12, 2023. Time commitment includes the following components:

  • 2 hours for workshop sessions each Saturday
  • 1 hour for a one-on-one meeting with mentor/mentee at a time convenient to both parties
  • 30 minutes for a self-reflection and feedback survey

The application is open from January 17 to 29. Apply here:
