Cambridge Center for Chinese Culture Mentorship Program 2009-2010
The Cambridge Center for Chinese Culture (CCCC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new Mentorship Program,
co-sponsored by the CCCC Executive Board and Alumni Board. The program aims to connect old and new students
of the school in order to benefit the mentors with leadership and advising experience, and the mentees with
academic, extracurricular, and career advice, as well as a new friend.
Events will include panels on different colleges and careers, workshops to brainstorm how to find an
internship/full-time job, mock interviews for college admissions and recruiting, career exploratory trips,
as well as social gatherings to foster a sense of community.
We encourage all eligible students to participate!
I. How it Works
Potential alumni mentors and potential student mentees complete surveys covering educational background, extracurricular
activities, professional industry, geographic location, and personal interests.
Mentees will be matched based on these criteria by the Mentorship Committee, which will select a mentor who most closely
matches their needs.
Mentor pairs are encouraged to connect at least once a month by phone, e-mail, or in person. Participation is expected
for one year, with the hope that the relationship will continue over a lifetime.
We are currently accepting mentee applications from students in Grades 6-12, who have enrolled for a minimum of two
years in the CCCC Afterschool Program, a minimum of two years in the Weekend Program, or a minimum of 14 weeks in the
Summer School. As our alumni base expands over the next few years, we hope to open the program up to all students
enrolled at the Chinese School.
II. Program Expectations
After receiving notification of a match, students will be responsible for making the first connection. Alumnae mentors
will be notified of their student match and should expect to hear from their student within one week of this announcement.
Alumnae and students should agree on a regular check-in method and should plan to communicate at least once a month, by
phone, e-mail or in person.
Students are expected to make every effort to meet in person, should they find themselves in your region. Alternatively,
you should attempt to schedule a meeting with your student if you are local or if your travels bring you to Boston.
III. Get Involved
We are currently seeking mentors and mentees for the 2009-2010 academic year. If interested, please email us
