HOW CAN I HELP?
There are many ways to give back to New College in celebration of your years here. You can get involved in the Mentor Program (see below), join the New College Alumnae/i Association or attend events on campus.

THE NEW COLLEGE MENTOR PROGRAM
The program pairs a current NCF with a alumnae/i mentor in a career field that interests them. The Mentor Program has four main objectives:

  • Strengthen the New College community by linking students and recent graduates with alumnae/i mentors
  • Provide a framework and support system for the mentoring process
  • Help students and recent grads design and prepare for the next chapters of their lives
  • Provide alumnae/i with opportunities to build mentoring skills and “pay it forward”

What would I have to do?
After the initial contact is made, Mentors and mentees should commit to speaking a minimum of 1-2 times a month during the mentoring cycle. Although email is an important tool in distance mentoring, it cannot be substituted for actual, real-time conversation. Conversations may occur over the phone, via Skype (or similar software), and/or in person when possible.
