Alumni Mentorship

You have something to offer the world and Touro.

When you share professional and personal experiences and expertise with current students the connections made prepare our students for success and leave a lasting impact on our community.

Meaningful Mentoring

We believe the educational path begun at Touro isn't linear, it's circular. Our students and our Alumni benefit enormously when there is a symbiotic relationship between the two groups. Not only are these relationships mutually beneficial, in a very real sense they also benefit our communities, our country and the world.

Alumni Mentors provide knowledge, understanding and perspective that students have consistently said they desperately want and need. Students, on the other hand, provide Alumni with new enthusiasm, inspired optimism, and untapped ability.

Symbiosis. Reciprocity. Excitement. Fulfillment. Our Mentorship program offers these things to you, as an alum, and to our students, as individuals on the precipice of a great professional future.

The Mentorship Program

Alumni Mentors

The Touro California Alumni Mentor Program enables you to share your professional and personal experience and expertise with current Touro California students. The connections made in the program help prepare our students for a successful future and leave a lasting impact on our campus community.

As an Alumni mentor, you will have the opportunity to advise student(s) through academic guidance, career advice and personal development for the academic year. We encourage mentors and mentees to connect on a regular basis (i.e. once-a-month phone call, in-person meeting, or email conversation). However, the frequency and form of communication are things you may determine together.

You do not have to be on campus to leave a footprint at Touro. Whether you are right down the street or across the globe, we invite alumni from around the world to be part of the Touro California Alumni Mentor Program.

Student Mentees

As a Touro California student, you have exclusive access to a robust network of Alumni who are eager and willing to meet you and share their wisdom and knowledge about life after Toruo. The Alumni Mentor Program is a unique opportunity for you to form meaningful and lasting relationships with Alumni that will extend beyond campus walls.

As a program participant, you will be paired with a mentor for an entire academic year. We encourage mentors and mentees to connect on a regular basis. You will decide the frequency and form of communication together.

Matching Process

Students and Alumni are thoughtfully paired based on a variety of factors including course of study and career aspirations. It is important to note that student protégés and Alumni mentors may not have the exact major or career but we believe our Alumni mentors have much more to offer than just career advice! All of your professional, personal, academic and life experiences are valuable to share.

While we cannot guarantee every Alumni volunteer will be paired, willing Alumni volunteers who are not paired are offered other opportunities to support students.
