Professional mentors serve a valuable role in helping prepare first generation, low income students and/or students with disabilities to enter the "real world" after college. Each school year Project CONNECT will choose approximately 5 SHSU alumni to serve as professional mentors and work with students in our program.
Mentors must attend one panel discussion (held on a work day in the evening) each fall & spring semester and must be available to communicate with students who would like additional mentoring via email and phone. Mentors will receive a small stipend to help cover the expense of attending the panel discussion at SHSU held during the work week and to provide compensation for time spent communicating with students via email or phone.
Ideally each year's group of mentors will come from different college majors. Mentors don't need to be working in the same field as their degree; in fact, alumni who struggled a bit to figure out what they want to do after they graduated will have a unique perspective to share with college students.
