2018 Smith Partner Summer Program

A Mentoring Program That Pairs Current Smithies with NYC Alumnae

Mentoring Program

 Due to an overwhelming response, we are no longer accepting volunteer mentors for this year. Please contact spsp@smithclubnyc.org for other ways to assist in this summer's activities. 

Join the Smith College Club of New York for the sixth annual Smith Partner Summer Program! Smith alumnae will be matched with current Smith students who will be interning in the New York City area. Once again, our goal is to secure a broad spectrum of alumnae volunteers, across class years and career backgrounds. We would like as many alumnae as possible to be a part of this rewarding opportunity!
The Smith Partner Summer Program is open to Smith students who are participating in Praxis (a program giving Smith sophomores and juniors a one-time stipend for an unpaid internship that draws on their academic background and career goals), as well as Smith students working in New York City this summer who would like to have an alumna partner.
If you are interested in participating, you would agree to meet in person with your Smith student two times this summer, once near the beginning of their internship and once near the end. While two meetings are required, we encourage you to meet more often if your schedule permits. In addition, you will be invited to the kick-off gathering on June 28th and other events later in the summer. The time commitment is manageable and, in the past, has been very meaningful for alumnae partners.
Please send any questions to spsp@smithclubnyc.org.
