The Yale Alumni Association is pleased to provide all alumni and students exclusive access to the Yale Alumni Mentorship Program on Cross Campus, an easy-to-use online platform designed to cultivate dialogues between mentors and mentees.
Alumni can mentor other alumni and/or current students and are also able to be mentored by other alumni.
To sign up, join or log in to Cross Campus and then click on the Mentorship tab. Choose which particular program you would like to participate in and click “Join.” Sign-ups happen on a rolling basis and matches are made twice a year, at the start of the fall and spring semesters.
How Does the Program Work?
Before matches are made, mentees and mentors express certain preferences and goals. In arranging pairings, we consider factors such as:
- Types of advice sought
- Mentor traits and skills
- Career and personal interests
- How and when to communicate
At the start of the fall and spring semesters mentors and mentees will be matched. It is up to both participants to establish reasonable goals and expectations.
A resources orientation guide is offered to both mentors and mentees to help guide them on their journey.
