About the Mentoring Advantage Program (MAP)

In the spirit of brothers helping brothers, MAP enables alumni to share their professional and personal experience and expertise with current undergraduate Phi Psis. It is important to bring alumni and current members together to navigate this unique period of uncertainty together.

As an alumni mentor, you will have the opportunity to advise member(s) on academic guidance, career advice and personal development. We encourage mentors and mentees to connect on a regular basis (i.e. once a month phone call, in person meeting, or email conversation). However, the frequency and form of communication are things you both can determine depending on your schedules.

Alumni do not have to be located near a Phi Psi chapter to have an impact. Whether you are right down the street or across the country, we invite you to be part of Phi Psi’s premier mentoring program, MAP.
