Mentoring is a great way for Hoya Alumni to give back and feel connected to the Georgetown community. Unfortunately, the idea of being a mentor often conjures up images of deep subject matter expertise or of a huge time commitment, and there's not an exact playbook to follow.

Mentoring does not have to be time intensive nor does it require decades of experience, however. Students at all levels and in all programs are eager to learn more about how those who have gone before them figured it out, and you have that knowledge to share.

Join Rebecca Cassidy, Director of the Undergraduate Office of Professional Development, and Tom Raffa, Hoya mentor and CEO of Raffa P.C., and to learn how to mentor effectively. You’ll learn what your students are expecting of you and how you can personally grow from the experience. Though every mentor/mentee relationship is unique, Cassidy will address the habits that create an essential foundation for a flourishing mentor/mentee pairing.

We appreciate your support of the next generation of Hoyas!
