WLFL Mentoring Program: The Wildcat Network
Wildcats Leadership for Life is launching a pilot mentoring program in Spring 2013! Wildcats Leadership for Life (WLFL) is a group of individuals who are committed to supporting the School of Leadership Studies through engagement with students and faculty, building connections between alumni and friends, and creating opportunities for continued leadership development.
Purpose of the Program: To connect past and present leadership from Kansas State University to network and develop personally and professionally. This program focuses on upper classman (juniors and seniors) who are closely preparing to enter the career world.
What does a mentor do? Your mentor’s goal is to build a relationship centered on personal and professional investment and transformational growth. Your mentor will focus on asking stimulating questions that prompt personal reflection and self-discovery.
Why have a mentor? K-State Leadership Studies students have indicated a desire for mentors to enhance their growth in these ways:
- Professional development
- Professional networking
- How to be a leader after college
- Things to consider when accepting a job
- Work-life balance
- How to stay connected to K-State
Your mentor connection: Most, if not all, mentoring relationships will be via “distance”, that is you may meet by:
- Google Hangout
- Instant messenger, etc.
Time commitment: It’s up to you. It is recommended that you and your mentor connect on at least a monthly basis; however, the frequency, topics, and duration of the mentoring relationship will be decided upon by you and your mentor.
The Selection Process:
Applications are accepted on a continual basis. Please submit your application to 103 Leadership Studies Building. If accepted, you will be matched with a mentor that can support you in your desired areas of growth. Please note: the total number of students accepted will depend on the total number of mentors available.
