Become a Mentor

Share your workplace experience and help our students define and achieve their career goals. For many students, the mentor relationship represents the onset of a lifelong career.

Take recent MPA graduate Anna Freedman, for example. She saw the Mentoring Program as a way to connect with a professional in public service. "Since I hadn't worked in the public sector before, I wanted to learn from a practitioner, pick up on key management skills, and find out what skills are most valued," said Freedman. She also sought general advice, networking support, and someone to help her think about her career goals in new ways.

Offer Internships

Work with some of our brightest, most career-driven students who are seeking real-life experiences. We carefully match students with positions based on their career goals, interests, and strengths.

For recent alumna Alyson Reitano, an internship offered her the chance to explore her two greatest interests—marketing and global business. As an intern for the United Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNA-GB), Reitano worked in the communications department, where she managed their social media sites and wrote blogs. Many of our interns do so well, they transition into full-time employees after graduation. 

Let us know if you have an internship opportunity for a student, or would like help creating one.
