MAPS: Alumnae-to-Student Mentoring



Alumnae-to-Student Mentoring matches current students with alumnae for ongoing mentoring throughout the academic year.  Outside of being matched with an alumna in the NY area, students take part in trainings, events with impressive speakers and dynamic topics, and ongoing networking with all program participants. Each mentored student will have the chance to see inside an industry or organization through the eyes of an alumna who knows it best. With that insight, along with feedback, guidance and support from their mentors, students will be able to envision themselves as emerging professionals.
