QCC Mentoring

Mentor with student mentees

Quinsigamond Community College Mentoring connects QCC students with staff, faculty, industry, and community members to create one-on-one mentoring relationships. This unique program provides extensive benefits to students, as well as professional development and networking opportunities for mentors.

This program will provide a way for QCC students to connect with mentors and build positive relationships to support their college experience. Students will also develop employer desired skills, gain an understanding of workplace expectations and networking to increase their likelihood of finding a rewarding career. 

The QCC Mentoring program will host monthly workshops and social events for mentors and mentees throughout the academic year. Mentors will have access to QCC professional development, as well as the Fab Lab, library and additional on-campus resources. The program will conclude with an end-of-the year reception in May.
