Students will be back soon and looking to connect with experienced Bulldogs like you. In the video above, you’ll hear why your fellow alumni find mentoring so rewarding they don’t want you to miss out.
Connect anywhere and on your schedule. Getting started is easy.
- Create a profile at mentor.uga.edu.
- Accept a student request for mentorship.
What’s the commitment?
- 1-2 hours per month for four months (16 weeks).
- Share knowledge, experiences and feedback (and, sometimes, just listen).
Quick Chats require even less of a time commitment.
If a 16-week mentorship doesn’t suit your schedule, consider making yourself available for 15-to-30-minute Quick Chats with students instead.
Help a student realize their potential.
I feel that the UGA Mentor Program has allowed me to grow beyond being a student and I will be leaving here with more than just a degree.– UGA Student
