The USG Alumni Mentoring program announces the launch of a new mentoring cycle open to alumni of all U.S. Government-funded exchange programs. This six-month-long mentoring program is a professional development opportunity aimed at connecting senior and junior exchange program alumni to develop professional contacts, network, and explore the vibrant USG Russia Alumni community.

Both senior and junior alumni are invited to apply to participate in this program by completing the online application. The participating junior alumni will be assigned to a mentor – a senior alumnus/a of a U.S. Government-sponsored exchange program, according to shared professional interests and personal compatibility.

The program will offer those chosen to participate the chance to take part in a launch, where mentors and mentees will meet and learn about how to structure a mentoring relationship and learn other relevant skills; monthly professional development events in different cities in Russia; and when possible, a closing ceremony.

Program duration is April 10-11, 2020 (required launch for all participants) – October 2020.
