Over its 9 years of operation, the ACAA has been very fortunate to become connected with a large group of extremely successful China-based Australian university alumni who achieved extraordinary things in their chosen fields. To maximize this incredible alumni resource and to strengthen the relationships between fellow alumni, the ACAA initiated Mentor Program. This proved to be a great success substantial support from the alumni community.
Our Mentor Program enables mentee participants to develop professionally and personally and provides an increased level of knowledge and a more varied skill set through sharing information and experience with a senior industry professional. The aims of this program are to provide a better level of support for younger Australian alumni in China throughout their various stages of career development and to build a stronger Australia China community. Dozens of alumni have participated in our program and received guidance from their mentors.
Having upgraded the ACAA website and launched our new WeChat Advanced Platform, ACAA Connect, we are proud to announce the 2017 Mentor Program. We believe that this year’s program will be even more convenient and efficient for both mentees and mentors to find each other and to regularly communicate. Mentees can easily send requests to mentors via the ACAA website and the ACAA WeChat Advanced Platform. This year, the ACAA Mentor Program will be scheduled quarterly to provide more opportunity for alumni to participate. We are also delighted to let you know that some of the finalists and winners of the 2016 Australia China Alumni Awards will act as mentors for this program.
