Welcome to the KCC Connections Student Mentoring Program! We’re glad you’re here!
This program offers students the opportunity to develop one-on-one, personal, and reciprocal relationships with faculty, staff, and alumni mentors who can offer them support, guidance, and encouragement as they work to achieve their academic goals and pursue their chosen careers.
Mentors and their student mentees meet regularly throughout the semester—the frequency of these meetings is determined by each mentoring pair. We ask mentors and students to commit to working together for six months (one semester and the following module), though many mentoring pairs choose to continue the relationship beyond that time.
Mentors: Please click the link above to join.
Students: Before you join, you need to complete a short, online mentoring orientation.
- If you have already completed the orientation, please click the green button above to join and keep an eye out for a confirmation email.
- If you have not yet completed the orientation, click here to learn more about what mentoring is and how you can get the most out of it, as well how to get matched with a mentor.
Like anything else in life, what you get out of mentoring depends on what you put into it! Students who have met regularly with their mentors report feeling supported and empowered, and mentors in such relationships find the experience to be enjoyable and rewarding. We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity and, again, welcome! If you have questions, feel free to email the program coordinator, Janine Graziano, at email@example.com.
