Alumni Mentorship Programs

Alumni Mentorship Program

After getting their feet wet in the workforce, new alumni are often confronted with a challenging question: what’s next? These young professionals have experienced a taste of the ‘real world’ and are now ready to seriously consider what they want in a career. This can be a daunting question to face alone.

To serve this need the BAA has established an Alumni Mentorship Program to help connect recent grads with more experienced alumni. Registration for the 2016/17 Alumni Mentorship Program year is now closed. If you have applied to participate in this year's program, your application will be reviewed for an appropriate match and you will receive a confirmation e-mail with program details by mid-June.
