Thank you for your interest in helping our students navigate life at Northwestern and the formative years after graduation.

What is your role?

Leaders in this program will serve as mentors for up to two students from February to June 2021. You and your learner(s) will be matched based upon the compatibility of your profiles—how often you’d like to meet, what you’d like to discuss, your communication preferences, etc. Your job is to be you! Your experiences and expertise will be extremely valuable to your learner.

I’m already a mentor in the Northwestern Network Mentorship Program. Is this the same set-up as that program?

The ALL Program, in addition to being a one-to-one mentorship program, will also have a community-based component where you and your learner can utilize discussion boards, attend networking sessions, and meet other mentor-mentee pairs. We hope that in addition to having a positive mentoring relationship, you both can find a sense of community in the ALL Program.

What’s the next step?

Registration is open from December 15, 2020, to January 29, 2021.


  • Leaders and Learners register between December 15, 2020, and January 29, 2021.
  • Matches will be made the week of February 8, 2021.
  • Pairs will be matched through June 2021.
