How to get involved with SJC Mentor

Alumni interested in becoming mentors should select the “willing to help” option when they register on SJCNYconnect.com. Once registered, students seeking mentors for the Spring semester have the ability to reach out to you. The students will take it from here!

Students interested in finding a mentor can seek out alumni who are willing to help by connecting via message on SJCNYconnect.com. When the alumna/us responds to the message and confirms the mentoring relationship, you can submit the SJC Mentor Agreement form. Forms and additional information may be found in the resources section of SJCNYconnect.com You will then receive an email from the office of Alumni Engagement that will establish the pairing, and the two can move forward to plan their first meeting. For more information, and for resources to help you guide your mentoring relationship view the mentoring folder underneath the resources section of SJCNYconnect.
