University Career Services believes in the power of a mentor and offers a mentoring program that is mutually rewarding to our students and alumni.

Aspire Mentor Program is an alumni mentoring program for juniors who are beginning their professional journey.  Our networking and mentoring programs help students and alumni build mutually rewarding relationships, share knowledge and experience, and expand networks.

Aspire Mentor Program

The St. John’s University Aspire Mentor Program supports all students who are striving to reach their professional goals through a one-on-one mentor relationship.

The program connects third year students with successful alumni, providing an opportunity for achievement-oriented career mentorship and professional development. Throughout this year long program, alumni mentors guide their mentees as they work to develop career-related competencies, learn about their industry of interest, and build confidence in their ability to achieve success.

How It Works:

Current juniors are matched with an alumni mentor based on common interests, background, academic and professional aspirations.  Mentors and mentees connect either in person or virtually 1-2 times per month. To get started, students and mentors complete and online survey to determine preferences.

As a mentee you will:

  • Want to learn about career paths of successful alumni
  • Improve leadership and management skills
  • Stay informed about the latest trends in the industry
  • Establish connections with St. John’s alumni

Get Started.

All juniors are invited to complete the Student Interest Form.

All alumni who are interested in participating as a mentor are encouraged to Sign Up to be a Mentor (
