Alumni Mentoring Programme – King’s Connect

What is it?King's Connect

King’s Connect is the online community where alumni connect with each other and become mentors to current students.

The programme started 4 years ago and has facilitated over 350 mentoring relationships so far, and we want to reach 500 mentoring relationships by 2016.

1300 alumni are part of the platform and there are 310 active mentors. About 7 alumni are joining every day so the number of active mentors is set to rise to 400 by the end of 2015.
