What is eMentoring?

eMentoring is a program that virtually connects junior students with an adult working professional, often an STA alum, to share career advice, support, and guidance.

Why should I participate?

Junior year is when you’re making critical decisions about college applications, course of studies and career paths. You will have the opportunity to establish a relationship through online communication with a professional who works in a field of your interest and can offer advice on applications, studies and careers.

Although eMentoring is optional for most STA juniors, it is required for those pursuing a STEM/STEAM Certificate.

What will I get in return?

You’ll have the opportunity to explore potential career paths and learn about the skills needed to succeed in a career. You’ll also have the advantage of making contacts with career professionals that may be helpful with future internships and employment.

Program Logistics

  1. Complete the application. If accepted into the eMentoring program, you will meet with the program director for training, which will include program guidelines, expectations, how to make initial contact with the mentor, code of online conduct and online safety. Once you’ve completed the training, you will be matched with a mentor. You will be expected to make online contact with your mentor a minimum of four times a year.

Contact Paula Holmquist, STA’s ementoring program director, with any questions.
