Who is an SJCmentor?
An experienced professional with a degree from St. Joseph’s College and at least 10-15 years of experience in his or her field, who genuinely loves what s/he does, and would like to share his/her wisdom to make a meaningful contribution to the lives of others.
Community leaders, friends of the College, and other industry professionals may be considered for a mentor role in order to foster the most enriching mentoring experience.
SJC alumni or professionals interested in becoming a mentor must fill out a short inquiry form online. Once an application is received, an SJCmentor staff member will follow up with the potential mentor for an informational meeting and program overview.
Based on information acquired through personal interviews with potential mentors and mentees and matching criteria that includes professional interests, hobbies/values and location, mentees are paired with appropriate mentors. A match notification is sent by SJCmentor staff along with program information, guidelines and resources. Mentors/mentees are given the opportunity to evaluate their experiences at six months to determine whether any goals have been met and if new goals have been established.
While the mentoring relationship is formally tracked by the College for one calendar year, we encourage mentoring pairs to continue thriving together and carry their collaborative relationship beyond the program’s guidelines.
