Solutions For The Future

Together The Ninth Is Stronger

In keeping with the Fraternity's cardinal principles and responsibility to our Undergraduate Brothers, the Ninth District Career Mentorship and Networking Program seeks to informally provide support and resources to promote academic success, provide career counseling, and guide professional and fraternal development. The purpose of the program is to engage participants through self assessment, dialogue, and the development of positive relationships in order to strengthen Brothers' abilities to set and meet career goals, improve professional and fraternal etiquette, and enhance the probability of professional success.

Mentoring is a partnership based on a commitment to the mentoring process, common goals and expectations, focus, mutual trust and respect. Mentoring encompasses activities allowing for transfer of knowledge and skills. Both the mentor and mentee give and grow in the mentoring process. The mentee is strengthened by utilizing the knowledge gained from the mentor's expertise and experiences.
