Students can apply to be paired with a business professional who serves mentor during their high school years. The business professional can serve as a resource for students working on AOF class assignments, or just discuss hobbies and high school in general. Business professionals are asked to volunteer their time to mentor 1 or 2 Academy of Finance students. Mentors are asked to meet at least monthly for a class period and be prepared to discuss topics of their choice. The mentor can schedule these meetings at his/her convenience and the Academy of Finance hosts events throughout the year for mentors and their students. We also ask mentors to maintain a relationship with their student(s) for the duration of their time in the AOF program.
