Our mentors have conceptualized mentoring programs that help students of all ages thrive outside the classroom, develop their talents and contribute to society. We guide our younger students through a variety of extracurricular activities and help choose the right one for them. We help them develop and leverage their skills while getting more involved in their communities. Our customized mentoring services help our older students recognize their talents and interests and offer practical, actionable ways they can be transformed into a long-term career plan. A key aspect of our program is to help students think through their education goals and align them with their career aspirations in our one-on-one mentoring sessions. Our mentors help students form long term, flexible plans based on their passion and interests. The objective of the program is to help students set goals and be self-accountable.
The undergraduate and graduate mentoring programs help students build on their unique personalities and stand apart from their peers. Our mentors aid students in assessing their strengths, weaknesses, expectations and vision in order to help them develop skills that they are truly passionate about. Students are rightly confused by the considerable number of choices available and the career mentoring program helps them work through their confusion. Our mentors help students ask questions necessary to think through various possibilities, narrow down their choices and start working towards their professional success. The program consists of the following parts:
- A SWOT Analysis
- Profile Building
- Interest Investigation
- Skill Development
- Reading Program
- Technical Development
- Community Outreach
This helps students form a long term flexible career plans based on their priorities.
