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.‌
