PRIDE College Mentor
Alumni who graduated between the years of 2006-2016 – interested in volunteering as a Pride College Mentor?
Pride College Mentors serve as an informal resource to current Trinity-Pawling students who have an interest in the mentor’s college alma mater. Through email, phone, Skype, and the occasional campus tour, alumni can offer advice to students about the realities, challenges, and rewards of heading off to college. Your service as a Pride College Mentor will help build students’ confidence and will strengthen the brotherhood.
If you are a Trinity-Pawling alum interested in serving as a Pride College Mentor to a current T-P student, please contact:

Senior Independent Project (SIP) Mentors are matched with Trinity-Pawling students who are interested in pursuing similar passions or careers as their mentors.
Mentors may provide advice and relay personal experience from their own career or avocation to help students hone their own unique set of leadership skills. For example, if a student is interested in filmmaking, he may be matched with an alumnus in the film industry who can offer feedback on a screenplay drafted by the student. A student who wishes to explore a passion for urban planning may be linked with a parent or alumnus in architecture or city planning who can help that student create his own plan to develop an urban area. Every student has the opportunity to develop his own set of questions related to his area of research to help drive the conversation and collaboration with his mentor.
The extent of involvement as a mentor is flexible; however at a minimum, all students will send their mentors five questions via email, which the mentor will answer.
If the student has more questions, and the conversation becomes more substantial, we encourage the mentor and student to maintain a dialogue. This could take the form of phone or email exchanges, or in some instances may lead to an experience such as a face-to-face meeting or even an internship. If this is the case, mentors must let their staff contact know that they have completed their email exchange, but wish to continue to mentor the student, so that the student’s parent is informed.
Mentors will receive a brief survey in November asking about their experience.
