VSB MENTOR PROGRAM
Make Mentoring Part of Your VSB Experience
The VSB Mentor Program brings VSB students and alumni volunteers together in one-to-one relationships to support the student’s career and professional development goals. All student mentees and alumni mentors opt in and are paired based on the student’s primary field of interest, desired work location and mutual areas of interest.

Story: Grayson Pruett ’23 CLAS and Clara Spinetto ’84 CLAS
Grayson is from Lake Forest, Ill., and will graduate in May 2023 with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with minors in Business and Finance. Outside of the classroom, she has started her own business by hosting the podcast Meant for Big Things. Clara currently works as the president and CEO of Mennta Energy Solutions, Inc. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages from CLAS in 1984.
When Chiayu “Jackie” Yuan ’20 VSB thinks back to sophomore year when she signed up for the VSB Mentor Program, she remembers herself as introverted and unsure of her career path. An immigrant from Taiwan, Jackie didn’t know much about business in the U.S. nor did she know where to begin her career, but she was determined to learn.
