Mentor Opportunities

To achieve our goal of excelling at mentoring undergraduate students of Sigma Phi Epsilon at George Mason University, the VA Mu Educational Foundation offers a variety of ways for alumni and volunteers to mentor undergraduates.

Community Mentor

A community mentor is selected by an undergraduate based on a particular need of the undergraduate.  For example, an undergraduate may be an active participant and volunteer with the American Red Cross and ask that a member of the local chapter of the American Red Cross serve as a community mentor.

Challenge Mentor

A challenge mentor is selected by an undergraduate based on their particular focus within the challenge they find themselves in within the Balanced Man Program.  A challenge mentor may be an alumni, volunteer, or fellow undergraduate member (not within the same challenge).  The undergraduate member should use this mentor to help progress through the Balanced Man Program challenge.

Leadership Mentor

The Chapter Support Team Chair selects a leadership mentor in conjunction with the Chapter Counselor to serve a term of one year and mentor a particular undergraduate leadership position.  The undergraduate chapter consists of the following leadership mentor opportunities,

  • Chapter President
  • Vice President Programming
  • Vice President Recruitment
  • Vice President Finance
  • Vice President Communication
  • Vice President Member Development
  • Chaplain
  • Challenge Coordinator

The Chapter Counselor and Balanced Man Steward serve as leads for the Executive Board and the Balanced Man Program.

Career Mentor

A career mentor is selected by an undergraduate based on a particular discipline, field, or interest in a discipline or field. Individuals interested in serving as a career mentor can be in a formal or informal mentorship with an undergraduate.
