The UCLA Alumni Mentor Program is designed to engage alumni volunteers of all backgrounds and experience levels. You will be paired for the full academic year (October to June) with the mentee(s) you have accepted. We encourage mentors and mentees to connect on a regular basis (i.e. once a month phone call, in-person meeting, or email conversation). However, the frequency and form of communication are things you both can determine.
Throughout the year, the we will offer tips on effective mentorship techniques, topics to discuss with your student, and suggested activities to connect. Our team will also be standing by to answer any questions you might have. Prior mentorship experience is not required.
