Aztec Mentor Program logo


The Aztec Mentor Program (AMP) pairs  juniors, seniors and graduate students from all majors in one-on-one mentorships with established alumni/professionals in San Diego and nationwide. 

We are seeking new mentors for Fall 2016 and matching begins on August 22nd. 

AMP provides an opportunity for students to gain valuable guidance on a variety of career-related topics including one-on-one advice, networking, interviewing and job shadowing. Mentors have the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise — and give back to the Aztec community! 

AMP requires a 8 hour time commitment by mentors and students over the course of a semester. The program runs during the Fall and Spring semester.
