Connecting career and community through mentorship
Carrying forward the servant-leadership societal legacy espoused by leaders such as Martin Luther King, ASU has teamed with the Greater Phoenix Urban League Young Professionals to form CoNext@ASU. The program seeks to transition college students into high performing young professionals by providing them training and experience in leadership, community service and life skills. CoNext@ASU enables students to get access to mentoring that is personalized in accordance with their interests, needs and class schedules, and connects those students with professionals in a variety of industries — including engineers. In its first endeavors, the program has drawn students from about a dozen of the university’s schools, including the Fulton Schools.
