Alumni Mentorship

About Alumni Mentorship

In 2019 we relaunched our mentorship program as “The VFA Mentorship Network" and now VFA Alumni have the opportunity to officially mentor Fellows!

Whether you're five years out from your fellowship or a more recent graduate, you all have important learnings and relevant experience that you can share with our current Fellows.


What’s In It For You:

    • Connect with the newest classes of Fellows
    • Play a part in molding the future Fellowship community
    • Hone your mentoring skills through training and best practices from VFA


How to get involved:

Become a Core Mentor:

Be matched with a Fellow for a three-month mentorship cycle. You’ll meet for about an hour each month (virtually or in person) and share tips for their career growth.


Spread the Word

Two of the main gaps we are looking to fill are recruiting local mentors and mentors from underrepresented minority groups (people of color, LGBTQI+, and women). If you know individuals who’d be amazing mentors, please send them a quick email with this info.
