Young Alumni Mentoring Groups

 

Young Alumni Mentoring Groups provide a unique opportunity for Wake Forest young professionals 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 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 2019 – June 2020), 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 Five For Your First Five by Allison McWilliams (books will be provided) and supplemental resources to compliment the discussion.
  • Each participant will be offered the opportunity for ongoing individual in-person/phone coaching sessions during the program.
