Are you looking to gain clarity on who you are and how your work aligns with what’s important to you? Has COVID, the “Great Resignation,” or other factors made you reconsider what you want from work and life? Are you looking to figure out what’s next for you, personally and professionally? Would you like to do this work while building a strong network of Wake Forest alumni?

Young Alumni Mentoring Groups provide a unique opportunity for Wake Forest young professionals to come together in a small group for facilitated conversation, reflection, action planning, and to make meaningful connections about life and work. These groups are open to alumni who graduated from the undergraduate College in class years 2018 – 2022. Meetings are held virtually via Zoom.

For over 10 years, these groups have empowered young alumni to answer their most pressing career questions:

  • How do I excel where I am?
  • How might I figure out my next step?
  • Is it possible to find work that aligns with my personal values?
  • How can I get feedback from my manager and colleagues?
  • How do I set and uphold boundaries for my personal and professional wellbeing?

Together, we’ll discuss values, strengths, interests, and identity and how these things show up at work and in our lives; how to create a life that aligns with personal meaning and purpose; how to do work effectively in the midst of so much change, uncertainty, and upheaval; how to find your people; and so much more! You’ll get individual coaching along the way and leave with an action plan for what’s next, for you.

Participants are expected to attend all meetings.

“This group was an excellent way to connect with other alumni whom I might never have met otherwise to discuss meaningful topics in our personal and professional lives. Talking through these heavy topics with people in both similar and quite different situations helped provide a wide range of insights and perspectives. A great forum to discuss the big things on your mind and realize that you are not alone!”
