Connecting with Alumni and Students

ESSPS alumni are key in helping to shape our current students. 

Special alumni registrations to help mentor and coach students are available for:

  • Networking Night - alumni talk with seniors who already have post graduation jobs secured.  Students will be asking questions about what to expect in this next phase of life, and alumni can share their lessons learned and stories. 
  • Fete - alumni as coming-of-age coaches to talk with seniors who already have post graduation jobs secured about saving for retirement, exploring home ownership, cultivating a healthy mind, etc. 

Job shadowing supplements for students who require introductions beyond our corporate partners/sponsors are also needed from time to time.  Please keep your profile and shadowing status current (see Resources below).

Alumni can play a role in phase 2 of Level Up as specialist coaches for students or to help assess a student’s current employment as fit for their goals. 

ESSPS alumni private Facebook group coming soon!

Alumni and professionals who are interested in recruiting, will need to go the corporate engagement route
