The Executive Mentor Program is structured and designed with the limited schedule of a hard-working executive in mind, and the time commitment required is typically no more than an hour or two per month. There is no scheduled regimen of meetings and events, nor any required activities or tasks.
Serving as an executive mentor provides an opportunity for business executives to share their professional experience, knowledge and skills with UWF students who are preparing to enter the business world. The mentor will act as a coach and role model to support a student with his or her personal and professional growth. The program provides a golden opportunity for executives to counsel and influence the next generation of business leaders.
Being a mentor provides personal satisfaction as well as the ability to increase the workforce readiness of future recruits. As mentors, executives help students clarify and achieve their personal and career goals, through sharing support, along with offering friendship and professional advice. Volunteer mentors are executive-level business people who agree to communicate with students at least once per month through the academic school year.
We ask that executive mentors possess more than 10 years of business and professional experience, business ethics and integrity and a network of friends, colleagues, and co-workers that can be called on as resources to assist the student. Interested professionals will complete the Executive Mentor Program application.

We are very thankful for the remarkable business executives who are current mentors, giving their time and energy to help UWF students prepare to enter the business world.
