Apply to Mentor a Sister Today!
We are excited to kick off the second semester of the SDT Mentor Program to connect sisters with one another for professional guidance! This is a great opportunity to pay it forward to sisters seeking career advice and valuable professional volunteer experience.
 
We recognize that mentorship experiences vary, so we want to explain what the SDT Mentor Program entails with our program partner, Ambition In Motion .
 
Through our mentorship program, mentors commit to conducting a minimum of three, 30-minute conversations with their mentees over the course of one semester. The conversations can take place in-person, with a phone call or via video chat. Mentees can either be current collegians or alumnae who are seeking guidance as they transition into their professional career.
 
Ambition In Motion works to help ensure that you are matched with the ideal mentee and are provided a structure that has proven to help foster healthy, successful mentorships.
 
We would love for you to become a mentor! If you are interested, please complete the 10-minute mentor application.
