Mentorship Program

GCNYC Mentorship Program

The mentor-mentee relationship is an important tool to support the GCNYC community to ensure sustained, shared success. The mentorship dynamic provides mentees with important additional support while they navigate graduate school, access to professionals to see sustainability and impact in action, and the tools to develop networking skills which will serve them throughout their careers. It provides mentors the opportunity to share their knowledge, expertise, and experiences with graduate students in order to support them through their professional and educational challenges while giving back to the GCNYC community.

The GCNYC mentorship program aims to enhance graduate student experience and growth to ensure the greatest success and impact for The Common Good.

How It Works

Our student-alumni mentorship program matches GCNYC students with GCNYC alumni working across a range of fields where they leverage their impact-focused education to drive positive change. The mentorship program is open to new students across any graduate program at GCNYC. After graduation, students are eligible to join the program as mentors.

Mentorship applications are open to new students at the start of their first term. Application close dates are as below for the 2022-2023 school year:

Tri A: September 19, 2022
Tri B: January 20, 2023
Tri C: May 8, 2023

Mentorship relationships are expected to last at least 6 months and are welcome to continue unofficially beyond 6 months at the discretion of the mentor and mentee.
