Careers & Mentoring Volunteer Opportunities

BrownConnect - Networking and Internships

BrownConnect allows students to connect with alumni for internship and research opportunities, career advice, mentorship, and networking. Make sure your profile is up to date so that students and alumni can find you in a search, and learn more about the alumni-to-alumni networking features.

Post an internship in BrownConnect to tap into the Brown student talent pool to give your projects a boost and get to know today's students.

Women's Launch Pad

From October through May, the Women's Launch Pad mentoring program helps Brown senior class women prepare for life beyond Brown by pairing them with Brown alumnae in a mentor/mentee relationship.

Veterans Mentoring Program

Through the Brown University Veterans Alumni Council (BUVAC) Mentoring Program, veteran alumni can help student veterans navigate their journey from military to student and civilian by mentoring on topics such as broadening their networks, learning about post-graduation military experience, and how to navigate their chosen careers. 

Center for Careers and Life after Brown (CareerLAB)

Help current students by partnering with CareerLAB, Brown's on-campus career office. Participate in one event or with ongoing career-related activities; either way, you can make a big difference in students' career development.

CareerCon is a CareerLAB program where students can explore options for life after Brown by hearing from and talking with alumni. Serve as a conference panelist or participate in a networking session for a unique opportunity to help students expand their networks and gain industry knowledge. If interested, email
