Alumni volunteer programs update

22 October 2015

Volunteering not only helps ANU continue to build its network of alumni professionals; it also provides a platform for graduates to reconnect with current students, former classmates and remain connected to campus life, while helping build the skills and knowledge of future generations of ANU alumni.

We need you - Call for Volunteers!

The Alumni Relations team needs you, and your time and expertise in helping us ANU events including Twilight Festival (on Thursday 26 November) and throughout December Graduations (Tuesday 15- Friday 18 December).

By giving as much time as your schedule allows, your volunteer opportunities include talking to alumni, graduating students and friends of ANU about the benefits of remaining connected through programs and global events. At Twilight Festival, you'll help the Alumni Relations team by talking to visitors who include alumni and their families. At the December Graduation ceremonies, you will also encourage graduating students to provide you with their updated contact details and give them their exclusive graduation gift.

Volunteering provides an excellent opportunity to expand your networks and enrich your experience as an alumnus, and develop your personal and professional networks.

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer for either one of these opportunities, please contact the Alumni Relations team as soon as possible at alumni@anu.edu.au.

Alumni give over 300 hours through Global Alumni Careers Mentoring Program

The exciting inaugural Global Alumni Careers Mentoring Program is now in its final two months with 103 participants spread across 16 countries.

Alumni mentors have generously  given 318 hours (or nine weeks) of their time to mentor their fellow alumni.  Feedback from mentees have reported that mentors are very open and generous in sharing their experiences and that relationships have adapted to suit the needs of the individuals.  For example, two of our participants caught up for pre and post job interview briefs.

Applications for the 2016 Alumni Mentoring Program open early in the new year, with advice on the program in the December edition of Alumni News. If you are interested in participating in the program you can register your interest by emailing the Alumni Relations Team at alumni@anu.edu.au.
