Sign up to become a mentor for a Thunderbird student via T-bird Connect! Our alumni can give back in a meaningful way by helping current T-birds achieve professional and personal growth. By participating in a mentoring relationship, mentees can leverage the expertise, wisdom and experience that their mentors have accumulated during their careers. Mentees are given the opportunity to have a relevant perspective from someone who has previously been a student at Thunderbird and is now a successful professional.
Mentors, as Thunderbird alumni, will have the opportunity to advise students on academic success, career interests, industry trends & opportunities and initial employment guidance. They will primarily advise the mentees on how best to benefit from and contribute to Thunderbird’s alumni network.
- Mentors and mentees are asked to dedicate 1 hour per month for their meeting.
- Meetings between mentor and mentee may be conducted virtually (e.g., Zoom, telephone) or in-person when possible.
- Both mentor and mentee are required to review all training material provided by Thunderbird in order to ensure the best value of their time.
- The mentor-mentee relationship is encouraged to continue through the student’s academic tenure at Thunderbird up until the student’s graduation into the Thunderbird Alumni Network.
