This program is a great opportunity to get one-on-one advice, career insights, and networking tips from AFF members who are established professionals in their respective fields.

  • Journalism
  • Nonprofit outreach and development
  • Policy and research
  • Private sector with an emphasis on entrepreneurship
  • Careers on Capitol Hill

How does it work?

Pairs will meet once a month. Meetings are arranged by the you and your mentor and can be either coffee, drinks, or lunch. Meetings will be reimbursed by AFF up to $20 each month upon completing a short survey. AFF will also host an opening happy hour and closing reception for all of the pairs.
