How Does it Work?

Using the KAMP online platform, mentors and mentees will each complete a profile, which includes their degree, industry, and demographic information. Mentees will receive suggested matches, select the mentor who best matches their current and future professional goals and request to work with that mentor. If the mentor accepts their request, the mentor and mentee can then get in touch via the mentoring platform. The mentor and mentee will then determine how they will communicate with one another and with what frequency to establish the expectations for the relationship. 


Kellogg has purposefully designed this program to be flexible for busy alumni mentors and students. While there are suggested milestones throughout the program timeframe, mentors and mentees have complete control over the mentoring relationship and can decide how the relationship will work. 


Here is the program's step-by-step guide:  

1. Complete a profile to become a mentor or a mentee (this takes approximately 10 minutes). 

2. Mentees will see proposed alumni matches for their interests. Mentees can search for other mentors if they would like. A mentee can then request a specific mentor through the platform; the mentor can accept or decline the request. 

3. Meet with your mentor/mentee and decide together the parameters of the relationship, such as how often and how you will meet to set your goals for the relationship. 

4. Review the program's resources page to facilitate relationship-building. 

5. Meet approximately two to three times over the course of the 12 week relationship via email, phone, or video chat.  

6. Share feedback about your experiences and ways we can improve the program.
