Went to an introductory meeting of the Stanford Alumni Mentoring Program – have to tap into all these incredible resources!
For over a decade the Stanford Alumni Mentoring (SAM) program has been catalyzing relationships between students here on the Farm and alumni who were once in their shoes.
We have a database of over 3,000 Stanford alumni and connect hundreds of students and alumni in mentoring relationships throughout the year. With a foundation of such incredible alumni and students our mission is as follows:
- Create mentorship opportunities that allow students to more organically connect with alumni.
- Assure quality interactions through stressing the importance of openness, sincerity, and appreciation in every mentorship situation so that both students and mentors understand the true spirit of mentorship.
- Provide support and guidance through the ups and downs of the mentorship experience and serve as a bridge for both mentors and mentees.
