January is National Mentoring Month, which celebrates mentoring in all its forms and raises awareness of the invaluable and rewarding contribution that mentoring makes.
Kappa Alpha Theta wants to help our members make those important mentoring connections. In late July 2020, we launched ThetaConnect, a free members-only app, to help Thetas make professional and personal connections to advance in the workplace, get advice and encouragement about further schooling, and simply serve as a sponsor and support system for our members who need it.
We encourage you to join ThetaConnect today and browse the platform for mentoring opportunities. So far, ThetaConnect has nearly 3,600 members registered with more than 80% willing to help! In your profile, you can indicate how you want to help (or how you would like help): serve as a mentor, review résumés, even meet for coffee! New to ThetaConnect is a video chat feature that makes it even easier to connect with other Thetas, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic when meeting in person might not be possible. Simply search for the member in the directory and click the Video Chat button. You can even schedule a call in advance!
