Career Volunteers

This program connects alumni who are exploring particular industries or careers to established alumni in that industry.

Career Volunteers are Friends Seminary alumni who are willing to be contacted by fellow alumni to share their professional experience, knowledge and advice. Career Volunteers may act as coaches, supporters or resources. The relationship should benefit both the volunteer and the person seeking advice. Both parties must be open-minded and respectful, and should keep the expectations they have set for the conversation.

If you are interested in becoming a Career Volunteer, please contact Michael Mudho, Associate Director of Advancement for Alumni Relations, at mmudho@friendsseminary.org or 646-979-5053.
