Volunteers are needed throughout the year for Alumnae Association and Career and Mentorship Events.
About our Career and Mentorship Program:
In 2017/2018 the Academy launched a Career and Mentorship Program which aims to engage alumnae to share their time and talents with students by participating in mentorship and networking opportunities — alumnae share their insight and expertise regarding their post-secondary journey and their career, and students benefit from their experience and wisdom. The Career and Mentorship Program is a partnership between the Alumnae Office and the Career Development and University Advising Program. Managing the Career and Mentorship Program are Amy Houston '03, Manager of Alumnae Relations, and Adriane McElrea, Academic Advisor.
For the 2020-2021 school year, the Academy is seeking alumnae to share their career knowledge and experience in one or more of our Career & Mentorship programs. In particular, alumnae with experience in trades, computer science/IT, engineering, non–medical science fields, women in underrepresented industries or a unique/interesting field are sought.
