APEX College Mentor Program: Sponsored by Deloitte

Overview

The APEX College Mentor Program is a chance for our organization to give back to the community while also committing to help develop the Asian American leaders of tomorrow. This year, from February to August, APEX Dallas will host the pilot program of the College Mentor Program. 15 mentors will be paired up with 15 students from the Southern Methodist University. Our goal for the first year is to develop a strong foundation of mentors, sponsors, and resources to build upon for the following years.

Mentors will be required to spend at least 4 hours per month communicating with their mentees through email, phone, or face-to-face. Additionally, mentors will be encouraged to bring their mentees to their workplace. A feedback survey will be distributed at the end of the Spring Program to both mentors and mentees to help improve the program.

Our mentors have the following backgrounds:
At least one year of professional work experience.
Comes from one of a diverse range of fields (medicine, law, engineering, marketing, finance, IT, retail, accounting)
APEX Membership for 2005
Enthusiasm to pass on knowledge and wisdom about their careers and job industry.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact Justin Hung at justin@apexdallas.org or Anthony Luu at anthony@apexdallas.org.
