Lerner Executive Mentoring Program
The Lerner Executive Mentoring Program matches Lerner students with executives whose professional backgrounds are complementary to the students’ career objectives. Mentorships have resulted in an increase in student confidence in entering the workforce, expansion of networks and overall professional growth.
Mentors have 10 or more years of progressive career experience and passion to help our students succeed. If you’re interested in joining the program as a mentor, complete the Mentor Registration Form.
Students can register to be matched 1:1 with a mentor in the Fall 2020 by completing the Student Registration Form.
If you need more information about the program, we’ve put together some frequently asked questions.
