Mentoring is a proven approach to drive rich learning and development for both mentees and mentors. Mentoring also benefits the sponsoring organization. For employers, mentoring increases retention, promotion rates, and employee satisfaction for mentors and mentees. At universities, student mentoring is proven to improve student retention, boost job placement rates, and increase alumni engagement when tapping alumni as mentors.

ACCA’s formal mentoring program is a structured, one-to-one and group relationship based program in an organizational and academic setting. The goal is to connect people, increase knowledge and build skills for future goals and milestones. Mentors and mentees will ne trained to have productive conversations and meetings, providing them with career development tools and resources to accomplish set goals in an Afro-centric setting.
