Arts Career Mentoring Program
The Arts Career Mentoring Program connects current Bachelor of Arts students with alumni who can provide guidance and support on career planning and networking and preparing students for the real world.
Students will benefit from interacting and engaging with alumni and our alumni mentors will benefit from the exchange of experiences and will be exposed to new perspectives.
