This year's program will kick off at the Fielding Fall Fiesta on October 5th, where mentors and mentees will have a chance to meet each other and connect with other students and alumni. Mentors and mentees will also be invited to attend various Fielding School and UCLA events throughout the year, including a campus-wide mentorship orientation in the fall. We encourage all participants to set aside one to three hours a month to connect one-on-one (in person, by phone, Skype or email).

Alumni outside of Southern California are encouraged to apply. If you have any questions about the Alumni-Student Mentor Program, please contact Megan Kanofsky at
