St. John’s has a strong tradition and culture of supporting young ones to be successful in the College life. It is also the good tradition of the Alumni Association to provide mentorship program from our Alumni to the current undergraduates so that they will be more equipped when they getting into the society after graduation.
This is the fourth year that St. John’s Alumni is organising the mentorship program. Taking both the success and the learning from the past mentorship program, we will like to organise this year’s event in a different way.
Instead of using the one-to-one or one-to-two style, we have decided that this year mentorship program will be done on a one-to-five basis — in another word, a Table of Six format (TOS).
We would like to group both the Alumni and students as according to their preference, interests and disciplines into the group of six persons each. Each group might have 2-3 Alumni or 3-4 students. We will suggest that there will be regular meetings, lunches or dinners at a table of six. Then each TOS group will also start to work on one project throughout the whole engagement. The topic and the duration of such project will be determined by the TOS and then coordinated through the Alumni Association.
The objectives of such group will be to enhance further the interflow of idea and experience among not only the mentor-mentee, but also between mentor-mentor and and mentee-mentee. The project could be small or big or even to organise some Alumni related programs for all of us. We would like to achieve the sharing and active interaction through such projects and fulfill the ultimate aims of organising the mentorship program.
