The Khmer Alumni Association Mentorship Program pairs up a mentee with a mentor from January to June 2015. Throughout this relationship, there will be contact via remote session 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.
