HRO Student-Alumni Mentorship Program
In fall 2018, the HRO Foundation launched a pilot mentorship program to pair interested HRO students with alumni. We hope that this program serves as a way for HRO alumni to stay connected with the orchestra while serving as a resource for current students to learn about shared academic experiences, career advice, and how to take the HRO beyond college--whether it is as an amateur or a professional musician. Students and mentors were matched on the basis of academic interests and career aspirations and experiences.
If you are an alumnus interested in becoming a mentor, please sign up below.
Because this is our first year conducting the program, we are keeping the guidelines simple:
Please send a short introduction telling each other a bit about yourself and what areas/industries you might be able to assist the students with.
Mentors may connect with students in person, if they live in the Greater Boston area, or via email. Try to connect in person or digitally at least once this semester and once next semester. More is encouraged but by no means required.
We'll be checking in to see how things are going after your first chat, and then following up with a feedback survey at the end of the year.
Most importantly, have fun! This is not meant to be a stressful or high-stakes experience. The hope is simply that some meaningful connection will come out of this!
