University of Maryland School of Social Work Alumni Mentor Program
Thank you for volunteering to be a mentor to a current student of the University of Maryland School of Social Work. The School of Social Work Alumni Mentor Program is a program matching an alumnus with a current student of the School to provide professional guidance and mentoring. You will be touching the lives of future alumni by connecting with current students of the School of Social Work and providing them with another resource while they are with the School. Through your connection, your mentee will be able to further integrate his/her academics and field placement experiences in order to better touch the lives of his/her clients. As a result of your mentoring relationship, your mentee will be better prepared for the social work career which lies ahead upon completion of the School of Social Work program.
This is a voluntary program, providing an opportunity for alumni to make connections with students. Matches will be made based on the application completed by both the mentor and the mentee. We will do our best to match you with a student who has similar academic and career aspirations. After the one year commitment between the student and the mentor is completed, each pair will decide whether or not to continue the mentoring relationship. At the end of the year, mentors and students will participate in an alumni mentoring survey to assess the program.
Once you complete and submit the application found below, I will be in touch with you to provide you with contact information for your assigned student. Please feel free to contact me at 410-706-6408 or email@example.com if you have any questions and again – thank you for your time and commitment to the School of Social Work and its current students.
