YAB Summer Mentor Program- applications due April 9

The Young Alumni Board (YAB) Summer Mentor Program is for Tippie students who are interested in being connected with a Tippie alum during a six-week virtual mentoring program in Summer 2021. The mentor serves as a professional resource and helps you to build your professional network in your industry and/or city.  Mentoring resources and guidelines will be provided to both the mentor and mentee. Matches to students are primarily based on industry interest and where applicable, in the same city. Even if you don’t have an internship this summer, you are welcome to apply.

Below is a bit more information about the program:

Who are the mentors? Tippie alums working in the mentee’s target industry and, where applicable, in the same city of their internship / volunteer opportunity.

How does it work? The alum mentor will contact the mentee at the beginning of summer and will meet with them at least three times virtually throughout the six-week program

How big of a time commitment is it? We will provide guidelines and resources in the program. Mentors and mentees will be asked to participate in a kick-off call, provide feedback via a mid-summer survey, and attend the program wrap-up call at the beginning of August. We will request that each alum connects with their mentee at least three times during the mentoring program.
