Mentor a Swattie

The Extern program has been replaced with SwatWorks

Be a Mentor: Get Involved

  • Alumni and parents serve as workplace mentors, allowing students to learn more about their careers. Students can be from any class year, so the mentoring experience will vary.  You can offer insights at any stage in a student’s college career! 
    • First year students will have more questions about adjusting to college life and managing coursework.  
    • Sophomores will be thinking about declaring their majors.  
    • Juniors may be planning study abroad and summer internships.
    • Seniors will be working on their plans after Swarthmore: employment, grad school or both.
