OVERVIEW

Career Mentors will be matched to an alumnus of the South Bronx United's Academy program-most will be either in college or a recent college graduate. Mentors will support the mentee through the career planning and career search process. This would include reviewing resumes and cover letters, discussing potential career paths, reviewing internship and job opportunities, and mentoring them on best approaches to the job search, interviews, and more. Mentors will communicate with the mentee through email, phone calls, and in-person meetings.

SBU is looking for volunteers with a range of professional backgrounds; as volunteers are matched with alumnus with related career paths, we cannot guarantee immediate matches.

WHEN

Once a month, at the convenience of mentors/mentees

COMMITMENT

Career Mentors commit to holding at least one meeting, remote or in-person, per month with their mentee. Occasional training sessions and meetings with staff are held. Career Mentors are expected to commit to at least one calendar year of support; since pairings are rolling and made according to career interests of the alumnus, the start of a mentoring year may vary.

QUALIFICATIONS

Mentors will often be matched with a mentee who has career interest in the same professional area. Ideally mentors have served as mentors or managers in other professional contexts.

TRAINING

An orientation and training will be held with the College Success Coordinator and Director of College Guidance and Alumni.

BENEFITS

In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow underserved students to thrive in school, SBU is happy to connect with your school to see if your volunteer hours can work towards school service or academic requirements.
