Get Connected! is a resource-based mentorship program of the Charles B. Wang Community Health Center (CBWCHC) Alumni Association. Program staff will facilitate the connection between individuals who want to share their academic and professional experiences (mentors) with those who are interested in learning about these experiences and receiving guidance (mentees). General focuses of mentoring may include:
- Graduate/professional school advice, including admissions process and hosting opportunities.
- Internship or volunteering opportunities.
- Scholarship opportunities.
- Extracurricular activities.
Matches will be made on the basis of mentor and mentee goals, interests, and availability. The Alumni Association will pair individuals and provide mentorship guidelines.
- Choosing a career path in health care or other fields.
- Professional next steps or changes.
- Professional development (resume or cover letter writing, interview skills, board or volunteering opportunities).
- Networking and professional resources.
