The Khmer Alumni Association Mentorship Program pairs up a mentee with a mentor from January to June 2015. Throughout this relationship, mentoring will be provided via remote access, at least once a month to discuss any questions, comments, or concerns regarding academics, career choices, or any life decisions.
The purpose of KAA ‘s Mentorship Program is to provide one-on-one guidance and support for Cambodian students. By doing so, KAA aims to promote enriching knowledge, professional development, experience and relationships that will help empower Cambodian students to succeed in their academic/career success, individual goals and lives thereafter.
Mentors and Mentees
Mentors are members of the Khmer Alumni Association who have filled out an application. After completing the application, the committee leads will notify mentors and have them go through a training session. Mentees are students who have filled out an application, which includes a parent/guardian consent form. Upon submitting the application, a screening process will take place and a selected group of mentees will be invited to attend orientation. Afterwards, the committee leads will notify mentees and mentors of their pairing beginning January 17.
