Why Flash Mentoring?

With so many things competing for a student’s attention, flash mentoring, short term mentoring or one-time mentoring, provides a focused opportunity for students to engage with peers and alumni, fostering their professional connections and skills for the future. It also provides the opportunity for alumni to reconnect with their alma matter, giving back through the power of mentoring. It is a valuable learning opportunity that helps a student and alumni build skills and industry knowledge they’ll need to be successful alumnus and professionals moving forward.

With flash mentoring, students can:

  • Provide students with advice and networks for a more competitive career placement
  • Engage a larger pool of alumni through shorter time commitments
  • Increase retention by supporting the transition into student life

Students who sign up for a mentor are 14% more likely to stay in college. And 13% more likely to graduate college after four years.End Quote
