PACE Transfer/NECC Alumni Mentoring
Guidelines for Mentors and Mentees
The PACE program and the Alumni office have joined forces to create the PACE Transfer/NECC Alumni Mentoring program. This enables communication between PACE students preparing to graduate and transfer and NECC Alumni. Alumni mentors have graduated from a four-year college or university with their Bachelor’s degree and have volunteered to mentor a PACE student transferring to the same college.
