Mentoring Groups

City Street with Cars

 

Young Alumni Mentoring groups provide a unique opportunity for 2014-16 Wake Forest graduates to come together in a small group for facilitated conversation and to make meaningful connections about life and work. By the end of the program, each participant can expect to have:

  • A deeper understanding of personal values and how they impact decision-making
  • A broader network and community
  • A deeper understanding of personal strengths, interests, and goals
  • A plan for the next year to work towards career and life goals

“Joining a mentoring group in DC five years after graduating from Wake was the perfect “reset” button I needed to start thinking about my career goals in new and exciting ways. ” Kate Brogan ('10)

Expectations 

Over 10 months (September 2017 – June 2018), each group will meet five times.

  • Groups will be comprised of no more than 10 participants. All participants are expected to attend each of the five scheduled meetings, to do all readings and assigned activities and to participate fully in each group discussion.
  • Groups will be led by a member of the WFU Alumni Personal & Career Development Center staff.
  • Group members will receive and work through two books: Five For Your First Five by Allison McWilliams and The Defining Decade by Meg Jay (books will be provided). Supplemental resources may be used at the facilitator’s discretion.
  • Each participant will be offered the opportunity for 3 individual in-person/phone coaching sessions during the program.

How to Participate

Group members will be members of the undergraduate class of 2014, 2015, or 2016 only. To participate in the program you must fill out an application of interest by July 28, 2017. Participants will be notified of their acceptance shortly thereafter. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and assessed on demonstrated interest and willingness to fully participate. Upon acceptance, participants will be asked to pay the non-refundable participation fee within 48 hours or your space will be released to the next qualified applicant.
