Mentor a student

Mentoring is win-win. Whether short-term or long-term, this relationship can have a significant impact on a student’s career path while being an incredibly rewarding experience for mentors. Arts offers tailored programs where experienced alumni can share their insights into world beyond graduation.

Tri-Mentoring: In this seven-month program, alumni are matched with two students to help them develop their professional, communication and leadership skills.
