What is the Mentoring Circle?

AAAC Mentoring Circle photoPart of the mission of VCU Alumni's African American Alumni Council is to promote and contribute to the recruitment and retention of African American students.

Initiated, sponsored and supported by AAAC members, the Mentoring Circle connects current African-American students with alumni who have agreed to serve has a mentor for one year.

We invite and ask alumni to meet students who would greatly benefit from having an e-mentor/mentor to help open doors to internships, apprenticeships or employment opportunities. We also conduct a "mocktail" event to provide students with helpful tips on how to land a job through networking.‌

"A mentor is someone who allows you to see hope within yourself." - Oprah Winfrey
