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.

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.
