Graduates, you have the power to inspire and motivate.
Your knowledge, expertise and insights can help students get the most from their University of Phoenix experience. You can open students’ eyes to the opportunities and challenges they may face after graduation—and you can inspire them to aim high. Mentoring is a wonderful way to make a real and lasting impact on a student’s life.
Be a volunteer mentor on your terms.
The Alumni Mentor Program facilitates mentorships via an online platform, matching profiles of mentors and mentees on relevance. As a mentor, you can choose to mentor only those students you feel you can best support. Because you work directly with mentees to set expectations around how often you will communicate, you can build a relationship in the way that works best for your schedule. The new program includes mobile-friendly mentoring—respond to your mentee from your phone.
