At EWS, we believe that thinking well about the integration of faith, vocation, and service is of the utmost importance, and that alumni and students have much to learn from each other. Our mentorship programs have been developed with this purpose in mind.
We desire to connect students and alumni of similar interests, so that students can gain valuable workplace experience and guidance, while alumni can share their experiences as Christians in the workplace and help develop the next generation of thoughtful, committed leaders. We hope to engage alumni from all fields of vocation and service, to offer a wide range of innovative, quality programs to Dartmouth students.
If you would like more information about internship and hosting opportunities, please contact us or speak to an EWS staff member at the Conference.
